Best you patch your Cisco IOS now

Once seen as an isolated event, last year's breach of networking giant Cisco Systems Inc.'s network now appears to be part of a much larger operation that could eventually result in the disruption of networks worldwide.

Industry observers disagree on the significance of the security breach, but they do believe it should serve as a wake-up call for businesses that have delayed the implementation of IOS-related patches.

Daniel Golding, a senior analyst with Midvale, Utah-based Burton Group, said organizations must immediately apply any relevant security fixes because the stolen code could be used to exploit unpatched Cisco networks.
