    'Mumbai-based' hacker releases Symantec source code

    A hacker released the source code for antivirus firm Symantec's pcAnywhere utility on Tuesday, raising fears that others could find security holes in the product and attempt takeovers of customer computers.

    The release followed failed email negotiations over a $50,000 payout to the hacker calling himself YamaTough to destroy the code.
