The only real threat at this time resides with customers using pcAnywhere, Symantec's software that facilitates remote access of PCs. "Symantec is currently in the process of reaching out to our pcAnywhere customers to make them aware of the situation and to provide remediation steps to maintain the protection of their devices and information," the company reports.
Symatec admitted that it previously offered up the source code of its products in compliance with the Indian government so that officials could make sure the software didn't contain spyware or other malicious programs. Save for the firm's current caution with pcAnywhere as revealed on Tuesday, Symantec wasn't too worried about a possible code leak given the stolen software is six years old.
