16 May Hard-to-fix Cisco flaw puts work email at risk
Security researchers have discovered serious vulnerabilities affecting dozens of Cisco devices.
The flaws allow hackers to deceive the part of the product hardware that checks whether software updates come from legitimate sources.
Experts believe this could put emails sent within an organisation at risk as they may use compromised routers.
Messages sent externally constitute less of a risk, however, as they tend to be encrypted.
The California-based firm said it is working on “software fixes” for all affected hardware.
