Cisco router vulnerability
This general notice was issued by my host today, so I thought I would post it here to let every one know.

GENERAL NOTICE:
A vulnerability was discovered and published yesterday for Cisco Routers.
The vulnerability can allow an attacker to stop the processing of all packets
across a Cisco Router thus creating a DDOS attack on an entire network.
You can find more detailed information here:

Since Cisco is the predominant provider of routers it is very possible that you
will encounter network issues over the entire internet as routers are being
upgraded throughout the world this weekend.
