AntiSec leaks Symantec pcAnywhere source code after turning down $50k bribe to not release source code

Symantec had said it would pay $50,000 to a group of hackers associated with Anonymous and AntiSec in order to keep its source code from being leaked online. This was part of a sting operation and email exchange between hackers and Symantec — except it was actually law enforcement posing as Symantec employee "Sam Thomas" and using a fake e-mail address. The deal went to hell in a hand basket, so now there's high drama on the high cyber seas as 1.27 GB of Symantec source code set sail into the wild from The Pirate Bay.

During an email exchange, now posted on Pastebin, about extorting $50,000 from security firm Symantec to keep its stolen source code from being leaked, hacker YamaTough wrote, "Say hi to the FBI." Then added, "It's funny you do not use your corp account anymore."

Antisec really belongs in jail. Anon is bad enough being misguided terrorists but Antisec actively chooses to commit crimes.

They're forcing Symantec to finally patch their buggy code. Everyone ultimately benefits from this. Reporting known exploits isn't a crime...

They use their own security software, which we know is hugely flawed in many areas.

My work uses Symantec. I sent them this article, so maybe they will finally move to something else.

I guess you missed the "extortion" part. Or maybe you don't realize that's a felony. Or maybe you're ... rolleyes.gif
