Complete details are sketchy, but it appears that more than a dozen
Cisco routers and switches at seven Abilene-connected universities were
recently taken over via the vulnerability described at:
If your institution has any device running Cisco IOS software release
greater than 11.3 and less than the fix version (specific to train) it
would be wise to fix or work around the vulnerability.
