Symantec has admitted that blueprints for current versions of its pcAnywhere software were stolen in 2006 and that all users are at risk of attack and should pull the plug.

That includes users of both current and past iterations as well as those bundled with Altiris and the pcAnywhere Thin Host packaged with backup and security products.

I was telling certain folks at certain of my colleges for years that PCAnywhere was no longer a valid or secure remote access solution. I bet some still have it up. Not namin' names, ya know.

But, I'm retired. So, it is now someone else's problem.
