Cisco Software Exploit

Well Cisco has an exploit in some software which I will not go into detail about as I do not want to post information to help the hackers who are obviously reading my blog. [I know this after posting a bait to get them to hack a particular site and they bit.]

But Cisco still has a serious issue. They sent us a fix to some client software and tell us OK have everyone update the client software. Now what the heck good does that do? All some hacker has to do is get a copy of the OLD client software and then they can access my Cisco equipment in an insecure way. What they need to do is fix the SERVER side and disallow the old version of the client software.
