For Sale – Cisco PIX Source Code

As a CCNA instructor and security consultant I was alarmed to learn that a group called The Source Code Club says it’s selling the blueprint for an older version of the popular Cisco Systems Pix firewall for $24,000.
As the group says in an online statement to news groups: “This release is significant because Pix is vital to the security of many ultra-secure networks.”
The group specifically boasts code for the Pix 6.3.1 source code, which was replaced in July with 6.3.4.
Cisco told a news organization it is aware of the online offer and was investigating its authenticity. The California-based company suffered a source code leak in May, but no one has said if this latest offer from the hackers, previously known as Larry Hobbles, is related.
