Cisco IOS update

According to the Dimension Data's report more than 73% of surveyed companies have at least one serious bug in the Cisco IOS software that could allow unauthorized control over the system.
These are mistakes that have already been defined long time ago and on which the manufacturer has made available the appropriate update.

"To a hacker, a security vulnerability is equivalent to leaving one's front door unlocked," said Neil Campbell, Dimension Data's global security manager. "And attempting to exploit vulnerabilities is usually the first port of call when initiating an attack. That's because it may provide the hacker with full access to the device, which he could use as a launch pad to initiate further attacks internally."

The prominence of Cisco in Dimension's results is not surprising, the company is a prominent Cisco reseller. The issue is more whether companies buying Cisco products are patching their systems rapidly enough.

"Patching is a difficult process for corporates. It is not something they have yet incorporated into their culture," said Campbell. Companies devoted most of their time to looking after vulnerabilities at the application layer, where most attacks occurred. Hardware vulnerabilities, even well known ones, came further down the priority list, more so if they related to internal network devices seen as unrelated to security.

Current information about newly discovered vulnerabilities and threats can be found at the official website of Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team.

DDoS attacks increasing

Every year more and more sites are being attacked by a method DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service). The Arbor Networks has developed a document "Infrastructure Security Report 2010", where you can read that fostered by the fact that improper implementation of safety systems, when you install applications such as firewall and IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) just before the servers.

The report, prepared after examining the questionnaires sent to 111 companies providing network services, you read that DDoS attacks are still coming and they're becoming more aggressive. For example, in 2010, reported first attack of DDoS traffic generates more than 100 Gb / s (ie twice that recorded in 2009 and 10-fold higher than in 2005). Increases, the number of such attacks. Nearly 25% of respondents said that during the month of record 10 or more DDoS attacks.

The report shows unequivocally that a DDoS attack will arrive. I mean both the frequency of attacks, and their strength. This may sound paradoxical, but contribute to the better-designed systems of security, because attackers are then forced to develop increasingly sophisticated methods of attacking servers.
