Cisco has released its twice-yearly set of security updates for its
switches and routers.
There are six advisories in all, each one covering a different component
of the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS), which powers the
routers. They cover IOS components such as Cisco's VPN software, the
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), and Internet Group Management
Protocol, and Network Address Translation (NAT) software.
Released Wednesday, the updates fix 12 bugs. An attacker could possibly
leverage some of them to crash the router, Cisco says.
