Cisco Hacker Finds Work at Rival Juniper

Michael Lynn, the security researcher who made international headlines in July for blowing the whistle about a major hole in Cisco Systems Inc.'s software, has found employment at Cisco's chief rival, Juniper Networks Inc.

A Juniper spokesman confirmed that Lynn works for the Sunnyvale, California, networking equipment maker, three months after he lost his job as a researcher at Internet Security Systems Inc. when he disregarded company requests to spike a presentation at the Black Hat Briefings Conference in Las Vegas about vulnerability in Cisco's IOS (Internetwork Operating System).
