Leakage of the initial code CiScO IOS?

As it became known SecurityLab, on 13 May, 2004, were stolen all initial codes of the operating system CISCO IOS 12.3, 12..3t, which is used in the majority of the net devices of company CISCO. The total volume of the stolen information is approximately 800Mb in the archive.
According to the information available to us, the leakage of the fragments of the initial code occurred because of the breaking of the corporate network Cisco System. Representatives Cisco System thus far in no way comment on the occurred incident.

Information flowed away from nobody man hearth no franz on # darknet@EFnet IRC where it and granted the small part of the initial codes (about 2.5 mb.) as the proof.

They are lined below on 100 first lines of the initial code of file ipv6_.tcp.c and ipv6_.discovery_.test.c.

Information granted DHG

ipv6_.discovery_.test.c - Neighbor Discovery unit tests.
ipv6_.tcp.c - IP version 6 support functions for TCP

It certainly looks (approximately) genuine, with Kirk's normal coding style and
normal calls to IOS infrastructure routines.
