Re: An Adobe Wannbe?

Cisco are now inadvertently promoting themselves as an attack vector; their clients who trust their brand, now have to rethink the trust that they have invested in Cisco network equipment. The culture within Cisco development and test teams needs to be addressed. The code base that created this plug in needs to be audited, the worry is, was this deliberate? Did Cisco hire a developer who had ulterior motives when he/she was writing the code?
