Another Week, Another Leak

There's been a little bit of coverage here and there about the alleged leak of Cisco source code. It's tempting to relegate it to the same dusty closet corner as the NT code leak but Cisco has always filled their embedded OS with a ton of undocumented stuff. Normally this stuff comes out piece by piece until something exploitable is discovered but all it really takes is one person who knows what to look for to document the previously undocumented and there's likely to a be an exploit kit in the wild shortly after. I guess it's the price you pay for depending on security by obscurity so consistently and for so long. On a positive note, at least we'll know about all of the hidden goodies.
