Cisco IOS source code stolen?

— 9:10 AM on May 17, 2004

This could be much worse than the Windows NT code leak that set off alarm bells for lots of security-minded folks. The source code reported stolen is IOS version 12.3, or darn near the latest release of Cisco's core routing OS. IOS powers much of the Internet, and the source's leak could expose vulnerabilities ahead of Cisco's ability to patch for them.
