Symantec says to disable pcAnywhere after source code exposure

Quote:
Symantec acknowledges a breach that exposed the source code for pcAnywhere. Users are advised to disable it immediately until software updates are available to resolve vulnerabilities.
Quote:
Security recommendations include:
  • Symantec recommends disabling pcAnywhere until they release software updates that resolve “currently known vulnerability risks.
  • As far as the other source code exposure related to the 2006 versions of the Norton products as detailed in their statement above, Symantec says that the “code in question represents a small percentage of the pre-release source for the Symantec AntiVirus 10.2 product, accounting for less than 5% of the product.” They recommend only that customers update their AV definitions and follow general best practices.
