Claims he got access through Indian servers
A hacker, identifying himself as Yama Tough, has threatened to reveal the full Norton Antivirus 1.7Gb source code on Tuesday.
Yama Tough, in his Twitter post, said this coming Tuesday behold the full Norton Antivirus 1,7Gb src, the rest will follow.
It has been alleged that Norton had shared its code with Indian officials in the hope that it would land them prestigious government contracts, and the code was not moved from the servers.
Tough reportedly found an opportunity to get hold of the codes.
Norton’s rivals are reportedly almost certain to look at how Norton is so strong and improve their anti-virus products.
However, knowledge of Norton works will not help hackers much, it is opined by analysts.
Tough has been releasing segments of code from several various Symantec products along with some high-level intelligence information involving India, China and the US.
