If you are a user of Norton Antivirus software, this is not the news you want to hear. According to reports Symantec has confirmed that they were compromised by a group of hackers known as “The Lords of Dharmaraja”. This hacking group claim they have possession of the Norton Antivirus source. According to Symantec the code is from old Norton versions, some ov which are no longer sold.
The hacking group made claim that they will publishing the source code on line. The fear is that other hackers will use this information to craft virus/code to exploit the antivirus. Knowing how the software identifies malicious processes could allow a hacker to work around it. However the potential damage this code can cause is only something Symantec knows.
We have seen some reports that claim the code was not stolen from Symantec directly but from a Third Party.
The hackers claim to be from India and call themselves The Lords of Dhamaraja.
