An anonymous group of malicious hackers reopened an online store that sells the stolen source code of prominent software products and is offering the code for Cisco Systems (Profile, Products, Articles) Inc.'s PIX firewall software to interested parties for $24,000, according to messages posted in online discussion groups.

The Source Code Club reappeared online Monday, using messages to online security discussion groups to announce that it was back in business. The group is using e-mail and messages posted in a Usenet group to communicate with customers and receive orders for the source code of several security products, including Cisco's PIX 6.3.1 firewall and intrusion detection system (IDS) software from Enterasys Networks (Profile, Products, Articles) Inc., the group said.

Cisco did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The club first surfaced in July, using a Web page with an address in the Ukraine and messages posted to the Full-Disclosure security discussion list to advertise its wares. Initially, the Source Code Club said it was selling "corporate intel(ligence)" to its customers, along with other unnamed services, according to a message posted in July to the Full-Disclosure mailing list by a group or individual using the name "Larry Hobbles."
