Microsoft announces zero-day exploitable RDP flaw that gets full compromise of server. Expects worm to be available within thirty days. I get to gloat and say “I told you so” to all Microsoft admins everywhere.
Reading the release notes for ASA 8.6.1 today and noticed this about new models of Cisco ASA Firewalls.
Couple of days back, Juniper announced acquisition of Mykonos Software. After reviewing the web site I find that I’m interested in this acquisition as signal of change.
I found this on Cyber Corner blog:
Another missing ASA-feature: telnet and ssh client: “ Every single decent Cisco-device on earth has the ability to make an CLI-user jump to another device with telnet or ssh. Except the ASA. I really wish that this feature could be added. Right now I am troubleshooting a firewall and from where I am right now the only way in is to SSH to the ASA. I can do whatever I want inside the firewall from my SSH-window, but I need to access a router inside of that firewall, and if this feature wasn´t missing i could simply run ‘ssh ip-address’ to jump to the switch´s CLI.
Am I the last CLI-.guy on this planet? Please, Cisco?

I’m coming up with nothing.
I have been looking about for documentation on how to configure TACACS authentication with a Citrix Branch Repeater, however so far I have only been able to find documentation for NetScaler. So I have setup a LAB and decided to write the documentation myself. For those who cannot be bothered to read this post there [...]
It’s difficult to a get any documentation from Cisco that confirms the forwarding performance of the ASA firewall. However, once you have got a unit, the “show crypto acclerator statistics” is a handy way to verify and check the hardware performance of your ASA. I think that most of this output is self-explanatory so I’m [...]
