Cisco, security researcher settle dispute
Cisco Systems Inc. and a network security firm reached a settlement Thursday with a researcher who quit his job so he could deliver a speech on a serious flaw in Cisco software that routes data over the Internet.
Michael Lynn, who left his job at Internet Security Systems Inc. hours before his speech, agreed never to repeat the information he gave at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. He also must return any proprietary Cisco source code in his possession.
