Time To Patch Your Cisco Gear As Cisco Releases Patches To Address Zero Day Exploits

Cisco has patched two zero-day vulnerabilities that exposed Cisco IOS XE system software hosts to attackers. More details on that here and here. These vulnerabilities affected devices running the Cisco IOS XE software, such as routers and switches.

You can get the patches via Cisco’s software download portal. Customers who do not have a Cisco service contract or cannot obtain fixed software through their third-party vendors can contact Cisco support. These fixes started to roll out on October 22. And the Cisco Talos Intelligence Group wrote in a threat advisory updated on October 23.

Thus it’s time to patch all of your gear ASAP as these zero days are being actively exploited.
