VMware source code leak: The implications

Editors, SearchServerVirtualization.com

There are still many questions that surround the VMware source code leak.

So far, only a single file has been posted, but the hacker plans to release another 300 MB of the source code on May 5. While the code appears to be from 2003 or 2004, many IT shops are left to wonder if the source code leak will compromise the hypervisor’s security.

In this edition of This Week in Virtualization, Christian Mohn, senior infrastructure consultant for EVRY Consulting, discusses the  possible fallout from the VMware source code leak as well as precautions that IT shops can take to mitigate the risks. This podcast also features the IT industry’s reaction to the SMB 3.0 protocol, in addition to news on VMware’s acquisition of Cetas Software, a big data analytics vendor.
