Time to patch your Cisco TelePresence systems
Because you can't be telepresent when the bad guys are DOSing you
Cisco TelePresence kit and software need patching after the company turned up vulnerabilities that open them up to remote command injection and denial of service attacks.
TelePresence TC and TE software has two vulnerabilities: an authentication bypass that gives attackers root access to devices running the software, while the DoS attack means crafted packets could trigger a restart of the affected systems.
The affected products include Cisco TelePresence MX Series, System EX Series, Integrator C Series, Profiles Series, Quick Set Series, System T Series, and the VX Clinical Assistant. The TE software is only vulnerable on System EX Series units.
