cisco logoSecurity issues in web apps, such as emails, are quite common and CISCO’s Email Security Appliance is no different. In fact, according to Cisco’s security advisory, there are multiple vulnerabilities in their email app.

The vulnerabilities include the following:

1. Web Framework Authenticated Command Injection Vulnerability,
2. IronPort Spam Quarantine Denial of Service Vulnerability, and
3. Management GUI Denial of Service Vulnerability

In response to these issues, Cisco released a free software update containing workarounds to the said vulnerabilities.

Again, just like software security issues, software updates are very common and are issued by software makers left and right. These updates may contain anything, from service upgrades to security patches, which is why it is of utmost importance that as a user you download these whenever they are made available. This is especially true for security software.

The easiest way to ensure that your computer software stays updated is by enabling automatic updaters, which is something most software these days provide.
