Re: ABOVE.NET SECURITY TRUTHS?
Ive had some private messages asking if i was involved in this. I wasnt. I was asked to write this initial email by someone who KNOWS the real truth of what happened at above, and why they are being so tight-lipped. Lets think about this, cisco in no way has such a flaw that would allow someone to 'root' and erase all the info on switches. The password was sniffed. Unless above has some employee who felt the need to do do this. But, my Above rep laughling CONFIRMED that this was the problem. COMMON PASSWORDS. Cant we make it a LITTLE tougher on the script kiddies? And not make EVERY MAJOR switch the same password? This is safe to post, because my above sales rep told me what the old password was. God. THATS SECURITY. Sales reps telling Clients OLD PASSWORDS. So, if we wanna verify my authenticity, Here's what she told me: whY2Ghay/1Pee-Fr331y Sound framiliar Above? Im suprised by lack of comment from you. Im out to HELP. Not to hurt. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Talk to your friends online and get email alerts with Yahoo!
