Hey all . Good news for VMware users . VMware has confirmed that source code posted on PasteBin by a hacker calling himself "Hardcore Charlie", is a portion of code from its ESX Hypervisor product.
An advisory posted on VMware's website, explains that its security team had become aware that a single file from the VMware ESX source code had been posted publicly.

VMware's statement acknowledged that more files may be posted in the future, but attempted to reassure customers by explaining that the published code dated from 2003/2004.So nothing to worry about . Have a nice day & Stay safe .VMware's statement acknowledged that more files may be posted in the future, but attempted to reassure customers by explaining that the published code dated from 2003/2004.
According to Iain Mulholland, director of VMware's Security Response Center, "the fact that the source code may have been publicly shared does not necessarily mean that there is any increased risk to VMware customers."
Meanwhile, Hardcore Charlie claims to have gained access to source code from other technology companies. Only time will tell if he goes ahead with his plan to publish it.
More and Source .
I don't need to know everything, I just need to know where to find it, when I need it.
5 days and no single man replied to this thread where the original poster says that "there's nothing to worry about". Maybe people here just like to respond when there's "something to worry about".
Human beings...I've never understood them.
P.S. Lucky for me I came from Mars...this source code news means nothing new to me....back there in our planet, we're in the process of reverse-engineering the entire Earth's "source code" (we call it Project HXTYRAZE) ...quite tough but with our brains (mind you ours actually work, unlike you guys poor Earthlings), we've come quite far. But for you Earthlings, "there's nothing to worry about" - we wouldn't post whatever we've to the public...even it does manage to get leaked (chances of that happening being 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 %), the entire code has been encrypted with the language barrier 1S0R1A9M9 algorithm. Nope, even our friendly Venus partners haven't gottten a clue on it yet.
They call me the mysterious one...
my motto is...when it's hot, chill baby
