This week Cisco Systems released its semi-annual Software Security Advisory Report detailing a number of vulnerabilities in its IOS and IOS XE switch and router operating software.
Cisco, a manufacturer of networking hardware and telecommunications equipment, listed a total of 13 vulnerabilities which, if left unpatched, could enable an attacker to gain system privileges or cause a denial of service (DoS) on an affected device.
Cisco has labelled all of the 13 vulnerabilities a Security Impact Rating (SIR) of High.
Cisco says none of these vulnerabilities have resulted in any attacks and that systems will be patched as soon as possible.
