Actually, they use the term "open source" in their press release, so
it's not an issue with ZDNet or the reporter. It's an issue with
AltaVista.

I could imagine that they'll give the source to members of their
affiliate program, but many people already had the binaries. Besides,
as many people point out, this is for their "intranet" program, which
is not the software they run themselves.

So it goes.
