Code attacks Cisco vulnerabilities

The software code, written by a group of teenagers in Italy calling themselves the "BlackAngels," exploits nine vulnerabilities found in Cisco's Internetwork Operating System (IOS). This software runs on most of Cisco's products, including its Catalyst Ethernet switches and Internet Protocol routers.

As these problems were discovered, Cisco published software upgrades and workaround scenarios to help customers protect their networks from malicious attacks.
