Leak of code CiSCO IOS source code?

As it became known to SecurityLab, the source code of operating system
CISCO IOS 12.3, 12.3t, which is used in the majority of Cisco network
devices has been stolen on May 13, 2004. The total volume of the stolen
information represents about 800MB in an archive file. 

According to the information available to us, the leak of fragments of
the source code occurred because of a break-in into the corporate
network of Cisco System.

Representatives of Cisco System have not made any comments about the
break-in so far.

A person whose alias on *darknet@EFnet IRC is "franz" has given a small
parts of the source code (about 2.5 Mb) as proof.

Below are links to the first 100 first lines of source code of:

ipv6_tcp.c:
