    The Interview with Mike Lynn

    And....as a continuance of this thread...

    but I didn't think this should get buried on the third page...

    The Interview with Mike Lynn...

    Wired News: Can you tell me how all of this started? You were asked by your employer, ISS, to reverse-engineer the Cisco operating system, weren't you?

    Michael Lynn: I was very specifically told.... It was January 26th and Cisco had just announced a totally different vulnerability than the one I demonstrated. They'd announced a vulnerability for something called "Multiple Crafted IPv6 Packets Cause Router Reload" (as they worded it in their patch message). But that's a very vague term. It just says, "Hey, something is wrong in IP6 with the router reload" ... but it didn't say you could be in control of it.

    ISS wanted to get protection in their products (against this problem) so that their customers wouldn't be as affected by it. So they called up Cisco to try to get some more details for it ... and Cisco wouldn't give (the information) to them. So (ISS managers) came to me and said, "Can you reverse-engineer ... can you disassemble IOS ... to find out what their vulnerability is?"

    Hi sweet_angel,

    My links in the other thread covered that...but you're right...it should have also been a topic in these conversations.
    What I find amusing about it is that Black hat co-operated with Cisco in the book-gate scandal

    Eg
