Update: Michael Lynn's controversial Cisco security presentation

A couple of noteworthy developments in this saga this morning...

First, a pointer to a copy of the purported presentation that Michael Lynn (formerly of Internet Security Systems) gave at Black Hat earlier this week on Cisco's critical vulnerabilities ("The Holy Grail: Cisco IOS Shellcode And Exploitation Techniques") showed up on Boing Boing.

Secondly, if this topic interests you, you should really read some comments by Bruce Schneier on this whole mess.

Update: Now the FBI is investigating Lynn for criminal wrongdoing? What's up wit dat?

Kim Zetter writes in Wired News this morning that:

The FBI is investigating a computer security researcher for criminal conduct after he revealed that critical systems supporting the internet and many networks have a serious software flaw that could allow someone to crash or take control of the routers.
