The Register - (International) Cisco released a patch for a flaw in its Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing implementation that could allow an attacker to take control of the OSPF Autonomous System domain routing table, intercept traffic, or blackhole traffic. The issue affects all unpatched versions of Cisco IOS Software, IOS XE Software, ASA Software, PIX Software, and FWSM Software.
