Cisco patched on Wednesday 36 bugs in its network products, some of which could enable a remote attacker to launch denial-of-service (DoS) and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. A majority of the bugs affect Cisco's Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) and Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) software.
- Cisco's FTD is a suite of network security and traffic-management products, while its ASA software is the operating system for its ASA corporate network security devices.
- Twenty of the bugs are rated high-severity, with the rest rated medium-severity.
- The most severe bug affects the Firepower Chassis Manager (FCM), which suffers from insufficient CSRF protection in the FCM interface.
