Symantec Released pcAnywhere Security Recommendations After Security Breach

After Security Breach Symantec Released pcAnywhere Security Recommendations
Few days ago Norton has confirmed that their Network was breached in 2006 and in that attack hackers have stolen the source code of Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition, Norton Internet Security, Norton Utilities, Norton GoBack & pcAnywhere.
Now the company has published a white paperPDF in which it warns against using the remote PC control software at all, since malicious parties could use the source code to identify and exploit security vulnerabilities to compromise PCs that use the program. In addition, an attacker with cryptography knowledge could conduct man-in-the-middle attacks on encrypted connections and create unauthorized connections to remote machines, thereby potentially gaining access to whole networks.
Symantec plans to eradicate the known vulnerabilities in pcAnywhere step by step. A patch was released earlier this week, but it doesn't fix the problem described above. Those who absolutely need the product should make sure to always have the latest updates and follow the security recommendationsPDF in the white paper.
