Back in March, a serious flaw was revealed in over 300 Cisco brand network switches that could allow hackers to take control of the devices. The hackers could use the decades old telnet protocol to cause the switches to restart or to even run  malicious code supplied by the hacker. This could potentially allow a hacker to listen in on and even alter network traffic as it moved around an affected network.

On Monday, Cisco released a patch addressing this issue, but just because the patch is available does not mean it has been installed or made active. At ETV Software, we help local Tyler area businesses design, upgrade, and maintain their wired and wireless networks. We can help you make sure every part of your business’ network is secure and performing properly.
