Mike Quinn, a former CIA operations officer and a current Cisco vice president of services, seems to have decided to revert to his old skills and track down a corporate leaker. Local media reported that someone inside Cisco had leaked an internal company memo to one of the bloggers, and Mike Quinn believes they have committed “corporate treason” and broke a “family” trust.
The email sent to salespeople describes Cisco’s internal response about a series of Network World stories that examined a host of bidding and contract questions stuffing up the California higher education system and the company’s involvement. The most interesting thing was that Quinn's response from an email sent to his employees was also leaked to the same blogger who was responsible for publishing the initial leak.
In the letter Quinn invited the anonymous leaker to voluntarily step forward, though conceded that a confession like that was very unlikely. He also added that he was planning to make finding the leaker his hobby. Mike Quinn warned that the whistle-blower might want to ask around and he would find out that he likes to work on his hobbies.
According to the company’s vice president of services, those who felt it was cool or appropriate to share this internal memo should now have the intestinal fortitude to stand up and admit that they did that and then resign. Quinn reminded to the whistle-blower that it’s Cisco who puts the groceries on the leaker’s table every two weeks – not the IT press.
In the meantime, the comments on the blog post were calling Quinn’s letter “unprofessional”, “threatening”, “hilarious” and maybe even violating of whistle-blower protection law.

@clamo: They seriously do suck... There was a time I considered the Cisco "brand" a solid one, known for it's quality and reliability. I also saw Linksys as a quality brand and bought their routers exclusively to set up for small businesses, companies that wanted Internet service offered, and of course friends and families who needed help with that sort of thing.
Soon as Cisco bought them, Linksys turned to crap. I bought several of them, stupidly thinking that I could trust they would be solid, well built products.. Figuring I had accidentally bought 2 or 3 lemons, I took the routers back two more times. I then got on-line and found forums everywhere talking about the same wireless drop-out's, configuration problems, FLASH risks, and overheating problems that I was experiencing.. I got that sick feeling in my stomach.. I hadn't just got a "bad apple" or whatever.. They were all bad apples. After working on and having so man problems with linksys routers and access points since then, I simply never, ever use them anymore. Netgear doesn't seem to give me much trouble. I'd appreciate any questions from people who have done a lot of work with different brands of routers/access points/etc and what their experience is...
