Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20080610-snmpv3

3750 crashed. Cisco recommends upgrading the code. I will upgrade the internal-fw-untrusted switch on Thursday, 3/20 and use those copper GBICs for the internal-fw-campus uplinks to gateway.campus.ias.edu. That will free up 4 fiber gbics. I will use one of those for outside-fw-bbc4 and two for BBC4-server.net.ias.edu.

I need to order the SM fiber and mode-conditioning fiber SOON!!

BIND DNS Cache Poisoning Issue

http://www.isc.org/index.pl?/sw/bind/bind-security.php - A weakness in the DNS protocol could lead to DNS poisoning of caching recursive name servers. This affects all non-DNSSEC protected domains. Newer versions of BIND utilize Query Port Randomization for BIND 9 which helps to mitigate the problem, but is not a full solution. The only proven solution to protect your domain from this attack is to implement DNSSEC on your authoritative name servers.

WordPress PHP Code Execution and Cross-Site Scripting in v2.5 and prior

http://secunia.com/advisories/29965/ - Two vulnerabilities have been discovered, one which can lead to authentication bypass (if account registration is enabled) and another which can lead to arbitrary HTML and code execution on the clients web browser.
