Cisco investigates source code leak

Monday, 17 May 2004, 1:13 PM EST

"Cisco is aware that a potential compromise of its proprietary information occurred and was reported on a public Web site just prior to the weekend," said Jim Brady, spokesman for the company. "The Cisco information security team is looking into this matter and investigating what happened."
