Google hackers stole source code, researchers
In many of the attacks company engineers and technical staff were targeted with malicious software. And in some cases, source code management systems were accessed and code was downloaded outside of company firewalls, Kurtz said.
"These systems are designed so you can have multiple people around the world working on them," Kurtz said. That often gives the bad guys several ways to get into the code. To make matters worse, source code management systems "are underprotected and not very well monitored," he said.
That means that they could make easy targets in future attacks.
