Cisco Source Code Reportedly Stolen
While it is extremely difficult for crackers and hackers to read and find vulnerabilities in source code, this concern should be noted and the Cisco IOS system should be kept up to date for the best levels of protection.

The FBI confirmed Tuesday that it is working with Cisco Systems Inc. to investigate the possible theft of source code for Cisco's main networking device operating system. According to a Russian security Web site, criminal hackers broke into Cisco Systems' corporate network last week and stole 800MB of source code for IOS 12.3 and 12.3t (an early deployment version of the operating system containing features not found in the vanilla 12.3 version). In addition, a 2.5MB sample of what is supposedly IOS code was released on an Internet Relay Chat channel as proof of the alleged theft.
