Just out of curiosity, are folks just applying the Cisco patch or do you go

through some sort of testing/validation process to ensure that the patch
doesn't cause any other problems? Given typical change management
procedures how long is taking you to get clearance to apply the patch?

I'm trying here to gauge the length of time before this vulnerability is

closed out.


it will be 'closed' probably about the same time that code red goes
will be routers sitting somewhere that are not upgraded (whether due to
insufficient hardware or skill or because they are in storage). yes the
will help, but there is/was a lot of publicity other exploits/holes, and they
are still

And along the way see how all of us are Connected.

On the Love that abounds.
In all places at once, seemingly endless,
Like your own existence."
