Symantec has confirmed that the hacker group Anonymous stole source code from the 2006 versions of several Norton security products and the pcAnywhere remote access tool.

Although Symantec says the theft actually occurred in 2006, the issue did not come to light until this month when hackers related to Anonymous said they had the source code and would release it publicly. Users of the Norton products in question are not at any increased risk of attack because of the age of the source code and security improvements made in the years since the breach, but the vendor acknowledged on Tuesday night that "Customers of Symantec's pcAnywhere have increased risk as a result of this incident."

Symantec released a patch fixing three vulnerabilities in pcAnywhere version 12.5 (the current version) on Monday, and said it will continue issuing patches "until a new version of pcAnywhere that addresses all currently known vulnerabilities is released."

Late last week, we wrote about the ridiculous situation in which MPAA boss Chris Dodd publicly threatened elected officials who take Hollywood money, but who don't pass the laws that the MPAA wants. Of course, most people assume that everyone expects a quid pro quo, but actually stating it out loud and on television is really remarkable, and has resulted in calls for an investigation into Dodd. I'd argue that the focus should really be on the politicians. In fact, the folks over at Free Press are now calling on those in Congress to return campaign donations from Hollywood to show that Congress is not for sale:

The 'Accessible Resources Pilot Project' ran throughout the 2009/2010 school year working with both dyslexic and visually impaired students and was led
by Dolphin Computer Access following a successful Department for Education tender. Funded by the same UK Government Department, the project tested a new
model for providing textbooks and other curriculum materials as Microsoft Word files. Teaching professionals at the schools also used the same Word files
to create Braille, large print, DAISY and MP3 editions of the 130 textbooks.
