PCMag: Security vendor Symantec is warning users of its pcAnywhere remote access software to stop using the product until the company releases a security patch. The hacktivist group Anonymous claims to have stolen the source code for pcAnywhere, and the company believes users could be at risk for an attack.

"Upon investigation of the claims made by Anonymous regarding source code disclosure, Symantec believes that the disclosure was the result of a theft of source code that occurred in 2006," wrote the company. "Symantec recommends disabling the product until Symantec releases a final set of software updates that resolve currently known vulnerability risks."
