Hackers put 'stolen' source code online

Thursday, 15 July 2004, 2:33 PM EST

A group of self-identified hackers has set up shop online to sell what it claims are files containing confidential software code -- and it says it's ready to take orders for more.

The group, which calls itself the Source Code Club, is offering what seems to be the stolen source code for an older version of Enterasys Networks' Dragon intrusion detection system and Napster's client and server software. The price: $16,000 and $10,000, respectively.

As proof that it has the code, the group has put a listing of the files online. By using email drops and encryption, the group believes that it can keep both the buyer's and its own identity secret.
