Internet Security Giant Symantec Issues Statement About Anonymous Hackings – No Evidence Customer Information Was Exposed Or Impacted

Symantec was hacked today, November 5th 2012 by the Anonymous hacker collective. Questions arose as to what was the purpose of the attack made against the security giant Symantec who offer top of the line Antivirus and internet security software, such as Norton 360.

Should Symantec customers be worried about the attack?

Was any customer data harmed during the attack? It’s not clear but so far, Symantec has released this statement to us over the social network Facebook, who coincidentally is also in discussions of an Anonymous collective attack today in honor of Guy Fakes day:

“Symantec is investigating the recent claims made online regarding the security of our networks. We have found no evidence that customer information was exposed or impacted. We will continue to monitor the situation and aggressively investigate these and any related claims.”
