An anonymous group of malicious hackers has reopened an online store that sells the stolen source code of prominent software products. The group is offering the code for Cisco Systems' PIX firewall software to interested parties for $24,000, according to messages posted in online discussion groups.

The Source Code Club reappeared online earlier this week, using messages to online security discussion groups to announce that it was back in business. The group is using e-mail and messages posted in a Usenet group to communicate with customers and receive orders for the source code of several security products, including Cisco's PIX 6.3.1 firewall and intrusion detection system (IDS) software from Enterasys Networks, the group says.
