Symantec Gives pcAnywhere All-clear


Symantec ahs released a patch that eliminates known vulnerabilities affecting customers using pcAnywhere 12.0 and pcAnywhere 12.1.

Last week, the company took the highly unusual step of telling pcAnywhere users to disable the program based on a 2006 source code leak and this month's claims by members of Anonymous that they were mining the stolen code for vulnerabilities.

"At this time, Symantec recommends that customers ensure pcAnywhere 12.5 is installed, apply all relevant patches as they are released, and follow general security best practices. If customers are unable to adhere to this guidance and have not installed the latest version with current patches, we recommend that they contact pcanywhere@symantec.com for additional assistance," the company said in a statement.

Symantec's announcement is obviously not claerly declaring the now-patched pcAnywhere is safe to use.

Symantec wrapped up patching pcAnywhere 12.5 on Jan. 27, then updated versions 12.0 and 12.1 with more fixes yesterday.
