Cisco.com web portal security breach

By Derek Sooman on August 3, 2005, 2:37 PM
Cisco is urging members of its Cisco.com Web portal to change their password after the system was compromised. Seemingly, an issue in a Cisco.com search tool could expose passwords for registered users.

"As a result, to protect our registered Cisco.com users, we're taking the proactive step of resetting Cisco.com passwords. Needless to say we're investigating the incident which does not appear to be due to a weakness in our security products and technologies or with our network infrastructure." Cisco said.
The company was keen to point out that this issue is not related to the recent story about security flaws in Cisco products.
