Few days ago,”The Lords of Dharmaraja”, a group of expert hackers, claimed that it had obtained the confidential source code of Norton AntiVirus. They announced their plans to release the full code on Tuesday, 17 January 2012. The day is here. So we can expect a big news any moment.
The Lords of Dharmaraja claim to have infiltrated secure servers belonging to Indian Military Intelligence. They have also made claims about pilfering the code and numerous internal emails. One member of the team, Yama Tough, then posted to twitter:
“This coming Tuesday behold the full Norton Antivirus 1,7Gb src, the rest will follow.”
Since this tweet, multiple snippets of code have been posted to PasteBin.
Symantec does not seem to be upset over this issue. However, Symantec said, “Presently, we have no indication that the code disclosure impacts the functionality or security of Symantec’s solutions. Furthermore, there are no indications that customer information has been impacted or exposed at this time.”
