Cisco Warns Of Security Flaw

Cisco Systems last week warned customers that certain versions of its wireless-LAN-management software have a security hole through which attackers can redirect users to a potentially malicious Web site or take complete control of a wireless LAN. Cisco says the flaws are within CiscoWorks WLSE, a management tool for the company's wireless LAN hardware and software, and the Cisco Hosting Solution Engine, which enables data-center services and monitors data-center performance. The security flaw is identical for both applications: There's a default user name and password combination that has been hard-coded into the software. "Any user who logs in using this user name has complete control of the device," Cisco warns. This is the second major security threat to Cisco customers in less than two weeks.
