Cisco finds new Zero-Day Exploit linked to NSA Hackers

If it wasn’t for hackers, you would have no idea what your government is doing to erode your privacy and security. How secure do you feel now?

Network equipment vendor Cisco is finally warning its customers of another zero-day vulnerability the company discovered in the trove of NSA’s hacking exploits and implants leaked by the group calling itself “The Shadow Brokers.”

Last month, the Shadow Brokers published firewall exploits, implants, and hacking tools allegedly stolen from the NSA’s Equation Group, which was designed to target major vendors including, Cisco, Juniper, and Fortinet.
