News: Cisco switch flaw lead to attacks on critical infrastructure

Martin Jartelius, CSO at security company Outpost24, advised Cisco customers to remove any switches they are not using to help mitigation against such attacks in future.

"Not a single of these breaches would have been possible if even basic hardening had been applied to the devices, or a vulnerability management program had been in place to detect exposed services," he said.

"In this case, simply turning off the service will mitigate this risk, but without a process to do this for any unused or unnecessary service, soon there is a next mitigation, and a next, and a next. You can only win this battle by preventive measures."
