Assessment

Cisco released its semi-annual Cisco IOS Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication on September 24, 2014. In direct response to customer feedback, Cisco releases bundles of Cisco IOS Software Security Advisories on the fourth Wednesday of the month in March and September of each calendar year. The publication includes six Security Advisories that address vulnerabilities in Cisco IOS Software. Exploits of the individual vulnerabilities could result in a denial of service condition or interface wedge.

CCIRC recommends that system administrators identify their affected assets and potential interdependencies with their organization's critical services, and follow their patch management process accordingly.
