Hacker to Release Symantec's PCAnywhere Source Code

YamaTough tweeted:
" Heil to our brothers @#antisec who support us. PCAnywhere code is being released to blackhat community for 0d expltin!" along with "We've decided not to release code to the public until we get full of it =) 1st we'll own evrthn we can by 0din' the sym code & pour mayhem."

YamaTough, the spokesperson for the hacktivist group “The Lords of Dharmaraja”, has informed Infosec Island of plans to release source code for Symantec's PCAnywhere software.

The release is to be made prior to the threatened exposure of the full source code for the 2006 version of Symantec's Norton antivirus, and the releases will apparently be coordinated through the defacto-leader of the Anonymous movement known as "Sabu":
"Lords of Dharmaraja has sent #antisec Symantec source codes for 0day-plundering. All your NU+PCAnywhere base are belong to us. Release soon," Sabu tweeted on Monday, January 16, 2012.

"This coming Tuesday behold the full Norton Antivirus 1,7Gb src, the rest will follow," YamTough had tweeted on Saturday, January 14, 2012.

The group claims that the release will demonstrate that newer releases of the remote access tool are simply re-packaged versions of previous releases with little in the way of significant changes to the software.
