"This coming Tuesday behold the full Norton Antivirus 1,7Gb src, the rest will follow," Yama Tough posted via Twitter.
In the past week Yama Tough has released fragments of source code from Symantec products along with a cache of emails. The hacker says all the data was taken from Indian government servers.

or other a/v users - weren't there a few other a/v program's complete source code hacked recently?

it's the old maxim "never leave your source code on an indian government server"

countries like that have strange "security" laws... probably to comply with that for some weird reason

India had a problem with blackberry before because of blackberry's encryption.. I think blackberry caved but I can't remember.

Because there is rising fear within population of data theft from Chinese apps -cough *Mi* cough- and there were demands for making these things locally available for government analysis to avoid/stop such acts.

I guess they have managed to legally expanded their reach and made other country origin software owners use Indian government servers as well. A perfectly fine demand and law, now next step would be to actually have proper/capable security system for our government servers

You can blame this on bullocks HR policies recruiting/rejecting people for silly reasons, 99% on paper might not guarantee more capacity in practicals compared to a guy who only has 80% -shots fired-
