Cisco Routers Vulnerability

    Its not like peoples are still using telnet/ssh/web with a
password/enable on the net... anymore.

    We do PCI and it took the better part of 6 month for a Customer
Network Engineer to get it right.
    ( The annoying part is that we cannot do the work for them, we can
only hope they get a paper cut every time we sent out a report about
that security risk )

    But I'm still curious what was the attack vector...

    As for my ~20ish Cisco device in the wild, they're all pretty healthy.
