Hackers breached 3 US antivirus companies, researchers reveal

Recommended Posts

Wonder who the 3 US anti-virus companies are? No doubt someone will leak the names.

In a report published Thursday, researchers at the threat-research company Advanced Intelligence (AdvIntel) revealed that a collective of Russian and English-speaking hackers are actively marketing the spoils of data breaches at three US-based antivirus software vendors. The collective, calling itself “Fxmsp,” is selling both source code and network access to the companies for $300,000 and is providing samples that show strong evidence of the validity of its claims.

Perhaps time for major software corporations to stop having source code, etc., living on a web connected server or whatever. Pull the plug comes to mind, and any theft would require someone physically having to enter buildings.
