Symantec PC Anywhere – Please patch for critical vulneratilities http://isc.sans.edu/diary/pcAnywhere+users+patch+now+/12463

QUOTE: Symantec released a patch for pcAnywhere products that fixes couple of vulnerabilities, among which the most dangerous one allows remote code execution. You can see Symantec’s advisory here.  Now, for last couple of weeks there have been a lot of rumors about source code of several Symantec’s products that got stolen by yet unknown hackers. Besides a post that listed file names nothing else has been released in public yet, as far as we know. However, Symantec also released a document (available here) that details security recommendations for pcAnywhere users. It is obvious that Symantec is aware of how critical published vulnerabilities are. It makes us wonder if there already have been active exploitation of the published vulnerabilities or Symantec is just extra careful?
