Multiple Linux vulnerabilities found in Cisco videoconferencing systems

This is quite a hole in a Cisco product.

The vulnerabilities were first reported to Cisco by Florent Daigniere, a researcher with Matta Ld, a penetration testing company based in Richmond, Surrey. He found seven distinct vulnerabilities in the Cisco products, including hard-coded usernames, weak session IDs and weak obfuscation of credentials.

In a posting at the Full Disclosure Mailing list, Daigniere said the Cisco vulnerabilities would allow an attacker to “get full control of the device and harvest user passwords with little to no effort.” The attacker could also launch an attack against other parts of the target infrastructure.
