The source code for versions 12.3 and 12.3t of Cisco's main networking
device operating system, IOS, was apparently stolen last week. The news comes
via a Russian security site, which claims thatthe person involved accessed
Cisco System's corporate network "and then boasted about it on an underground
internet relay chat channel."
The individual, the report continues, claimed that the total amount of data
in the archives was around 800 megabytes and provided two snippets of code as
proof of the claims.
One commentator, Mark Joseph Edwards, notes:
"[If] security-related bugs are found in the leaked Cisco IOS code and the
discoverers don't notify Cisco and given them time to produce patches then
the ramifications could potentially become huge since so many network uses
Cisco hardware, including core Internet service providers."
The last big source code leak was the Feb... (more)

IBM has brought out its first Intel dual-core workstation, the IntelliStation
M Pro 6218, using the 64-bit Pentium D chip.
IBM has integrated its workstation and x86 server teams so the box was built
from the ground up by its server people and according to IBM passed rigorous
xSeries server-proven testing. As a result, it's supposed to have
server-class reliability and interoperability. IBM already fields a dual-core
workstation, complements of AMD.
The new SME-targeted box maxs out at 8GB of memory, double its predecessor's,
for multitasking workloads. With a 64-bit operating sy... (more)

A Colorado start-up by the name of Secure64 Software Corporation claims to be
the only company in the world with a genuinely secure operating system.
Let's just let that worrisome thought sink in a minute.
Okay, now. This here start-up calls its operating system SourceT micro OS -
and Secure64 says Source T micro OS doesn't resemble any other operating
system we've ever seen before - and it's not general-purpose - because
general-purpose operating systems like Microsoft and Linux are, by nature,
So the only way you can get it is underneath a $9,995 DNS application - a
