Santy sourcecode publicly available

We have received information that the Santy sourcecode has been published on certain sites and security related mailinglists.

This opens the door for new variants to arise. However, I doubt that new variants will be very effective, unless search engines just keep on spitting out new, unpatched sites.

But seeing that a lot of sites are already infected, patched or a combination of both, I think the situation will not get as bad as we have seen now with Santy.a.
