Submission + - Cisco says FTP feature in IOS is a hacker backdoor

dark_15 writes: "'Cisco says a flaw in the FTP server utility in its IOS router/switch software could be used as a backdoor by attackers. IOS FTP, which comes disabled by default in IOS, is used to upload IOS software images and other software to routers and switches remotely. However, Cisco says attackers could exploit a vulnerability in the FTP server to gain access to the file system of an IOS-based router or switch and affect configuration settings.'
