Bad week for Cisco

As if the Lynn fiasco wasn’t enough – now the corporate web site seems to have been breached.

Go to http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/login and hit ‘ESC’ when prompted for a username/password. You’ll see the following message:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

  • Cisco has determined that Cisco.com password protection has been compromised.
  • As a precautionary measure, Cisco has reset your password. To receive your new password, send a blank e-mail, from the account which you entered upon registration, to cco-locksmith@cisco.com. Account details with a new random password will be e-mailed to you.

Uh uh. That can’t be good.
