Stealing Source Code
Hackers stole some source code to Symantec's products. We don't know what was stolen or how recent the code is -- the company is, of course, minimizing the story -- but it's hard to get worked up about this. Yes, maybe the bad guys will comb the code looking for vulnerabilities, and maybe there's some smoking gun that proves Symantec's involvement in something sinister, but most likely Symantec's biggest problem is public embarrassment.
