THE HACKTIVIST Antisec group has published Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2006 All Platforms Source Code on The Pirate Bay.

The leaked data is in the form of a torrent file and is a 1+ gig file

Anonymous, with which Antisec is related, has long boasted of its ownership of Symantec code, and this is its latest release in an ongoing campaign against the security firm.

Anonymous has released other code such as that from PCanywhere in the past.

What Anonymous Says :

The apparent Symantec code-dump, as well as the DDoS attack on the Vatican, were on the heels of an attack on Panda Security.

Sometimes you need hackers to help you avoid getting hacked.
Google offered to pay as much as $1 million to anyone who could show vulnerabilities in its Chrome browser

Less than two weeks after Google launched Pwnium, a competition for hackers to find security exploits in Chrome, the search giant has announced its first winner.

Google has paid out $60,000 to a security researcher for demonstrating a 'full Chrome exploit' in its Chrome web browser.

Sergey Glazunov, who has built up a reputation for demonstrating weaknesses in Chromium, is the first researcher to be awarded the $60,000 top prize. Glazunov showed off a remote code execution vulnerability in Chrome on an up-to-date Windows 7 system, which qualifies as a full Chrome exploit.

The exploit makes it possible for a malicious hacker to do just about anything they want on an infected machine.

$60,000 - “Full Chrome exploit”: Chrome / Win7 local OS user account persistence using only bugs in Chrome itself.

$40,000 - “Partial Chrome exploit”: Chrome / Win7 local OS user account persistence using at least one bug in Chrome itself, plus other bugs. For example, a WebKit bug combined with a Windows sandbox bug.

$20,000 - “Consolation reward, Flash / Windows / other”: Chrome / Win7 local OS user account persistence that does not use bugs in Chrome.

Update 1 :[11-03-2012] Pinkie Pie Earns $60K At Pwn2Own With Three Chromium 0-Day Exploits

Google's Chrome browser on Friday fell to a zero-day attack that pierced its vaunted security sandbox, the third such attack in as many days at a contest designed to test its resistance to real-world threats.

A teenage hacker who identified himself only as PinkiePie said he spent the past week and half working on the attack. It combined three previously unknown vulnerabilities to gain full system access to a Dell Inspiron laptop that ran a fully patched version of Chrome on top of the most up-to-date version of Windows 7. He spent the past three days holed up in hotel rooms and conference areas refining the attack so it would break out of the sandbox, which was designed to prevent code-execution attacks like his, even when security bugs are identified.

The five vulnerabilities exposed during the third and final day of the contest are miniscule compared to the overall number of bugs Chrome's security team fixes each year. A member of the team said the value of Pwnium isn't in the number of bugs that come to light, but rather in the insights that come from watching how a reliable exploit is able to slip through carefully crafted defenses.

What if you attacked by Virus, Whoz Mother tongue is out of this World ? O_o

Researchers at Kaspersky have reached out for assistance after an investigation into the Duqu Trojan uncovered a section that is written in an unknown programming language.

Duqu is a sophisticated Trojan which seems to have been written by the same people who created the infamous Stuxnet worm. Its main purpose is to act as a backdoor into the system and facilitate the theft of private information.
Conclusions-Kaspersky Lab Expert

  • The Duqu Framework appears to have been written in an unknown programming language.

  • Unlike the rest of the Duqu body, it's not C++ and it's not compiled with Microsoft's Visual C++ 2008.

  • The highly event driven architecture points to code which was designed to be used in pretty much any kind of conditions, including asynchronous commutations.

  • Given the size of the Duqu project, it is possible that another team was responsible for the framework than the team which created the drivers and wrote the system infection and exploits.

  • The mysterious programming language is definitively NOT C++, Objective C, Java, Python, Ada, Lua and many other languages we have checked.

  • Compared to Stuxnet (entirely written in MSVC++), this is one of the defining particularities of the Duqu framework.

The Duqu Framework: What was that?-Kaspersky Lab Expert

After having performed countless hours of analysis, we are 100% confident that the Duqu Framework was not programmed with Visual C++. It is possible that its authors used an in-house framework to generate intermediary C code, or they used another completely different programming language.

We would like to make an appeal to the programming community and ask anyone who recognizes the framework, toolkit or the programming language that can generate similar code constructions, to contact us or drop us a comment in this blogpost. We are confident that with your help we can solve this deep mystery in the Duqu story.

Apple Inc. unveiled a new iPad tablet with a sharper display and the ability to connect to the Internet on 4G broadband networks, as the electronics giant strives to stay ahead of rivals in the tablet market.

The new iPad will have a high-resolution "retina" display and connect to 4G LTE services that are offered by carriers like AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless. The tablet will also have a five megapixel camera.

The new 9.7-inch iPad starts at $499 and has 2048×1536-pixel retina display, 5-megapixel camera (with the same optics sensor from the iPhone 4S) and 1080p video recording. It will be available March 16 in black and white, powered by A5X chip (with quad-core graphics) and support 4G LTE networks. It’s 9.4 millimeters thick and weighs in at 1.4 pounds.

It will hit stores on Friday, March 16 not only in the U.S., but also in Japan, UK, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Singapore and Austria. And for the rest one wait until March 23.

Pre-orders start today. For Wi-Fi only iPads, it will cost $499 for 16 GB, $599 32 GB and $699 for 64 GB. For 4G models, it will cost $629 for 16 GB, $729 32 GB and $829 for 64 GB. It will have 10 hours of battery life, and 9 hours on 4G.

The iPad will also feature a retina display with 2048 x 1536 pixels, and 264 pixels for each inch. It will include 44% greater saturation and A5x quad-core graphics.

Apple is working on two LTE versions of the iPad with AT&T, Verizon in the U.S., as well as Rogers, Telus and Bell in Canada. Both LTE U.S. models will be 3G ready, too.

Update : Apple's new iPad ship date slips to March 19th in the US

Soon when you logout of Facebook, you could be greeted with a full recreation of the Bing home page, complete with pretty photo and an active search box.When you type in a query and press Enter, you're taken out of Facebook to a separate Bing search results page.

At Marketing Conference , Facebook explained that over 37 million people log out every day, which offers huge potential for advertisers. The new log out ad unit is an option inside Premium On Facebook, a new paid campaign businesses can sign up for that also includes News Feed ads and Mobile app ads.

Microsoft made a hefty early investment (which is now worth more than $1 billion) in Facebook, and even powers web search results that can appear inside the site's internal search bar. Facebook's new ads likely won't bother users (since they've already @ logged out Page), and will provide a new opportunity for advertisers to turn the log out page into the coveted back page of a newsstand magazine.

Now that the Yahoo deal has seemingly fallen apart, Microsoft is even more eager to expand its search footprint against arch rival Google. Google reached a large search agreement with MySpace a few years ago, guaranteeing $900 million in payments over 3.75 years. Since that time, there have been rumors that Google has been dissatisfied with the monetization performance of MySpace’s search traffic.
