Swedish teen arrested for Cisco code theft

Posted on Wednesday, May 11 2005 @ 19:30:29 CEST by


Cisco announced that a 16-year old Swedish teen has been arrested for hacking Cisco and stealing its source code. This included programming instructions for equipment controlling a large share of world's internet traffic.
The company did not elaborate on the theft, but computer security experts said the source code, posted last year on the internet, had been used for a series of attacks on computer systems, including those of the US military and research institutions.
