According to the hackers, they have downloaded over 300 Megabytes of source code. The leaked document includes internal VMWare communications. This security issue could have a widespread impact due to the number of organizations that run vSphere. The hacker known as Hardcore Charlie is taking credit for the leak of this information. The source of the leaked information is believed to be a Chinese firm that was compromised earlier this year."
