I don't see a lot of choice with this exploit.  It's easy and quick.  I
knocked down a 7206 in less than a minute.  Expedite where you can.

Subject: Patching for Cisco vulnerability

Just out of curiosity, are folks just applying the Cisco patch or do you
go through some sort of testing/validation process to ensure that the
patch doesn't cause any other problems?  Given typical change management
procedures how long is taking you to get clearance to apply the patch?

I'm trying here to gauge the length of time before this vulnerability is
closed out.
