(KMOV) – A popular anti-virus software company is trying to ease fears about hackers who stole the company’s source codes, the secret keys to how it works, for its software five years ago.

 
A company spokesperson told News 4 that it has since rewritten the source codes that were hacked in 2006.  Calls to Norton went unanswered when the story first aired on Wednesday night.
 
The company says that users should have nothing to worry about as long as they have the most updated version of the software.
