Thanks! I am always interested to hear about what is done with the data after it is stolen. Some choose to remain silent while others choose to exploit. Reasons tend to vary as to why.

Re: Actions
No details on what if any damage was done intel-wise, but there weren't any cases of known sabotage that Symantec and F-Secure knew of.

I know data has been stolen and software has been hacked on critical infrasture but has there been any word on what is being done with this data? As in, have the attackers acted on the information they have stolen or the functionality in which they have acquired in a detrimental manner? Or did Symantec and F-Secure not comment to that point?
