Submission + - 3rd-Party Compromise Reveals VMWare Emails/Source Code (threatpost.com)

Gunkerty Jeb writes: In what looks like the IT equivalent of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, purloined data and documents, including source code belonging to the U.S. software firm VMWare, continue to bubble up from the networks of a variety of compromised Chinese firms, according to "Hardcore Charlie," an anonymous hacker who has claimed responsibility for the hacks.

In a statement on the VMWare Web site, Ian Mulholland, Director of VMWare's Security Response Center, said the company acknowledged that a source code file for its ESX product had been leaked online. In a phone interview, Mulholland told Threatpost the company was monitoring the situation and conducting an investigation into the incident.
