Which Cisco routers, modems and networking gear are affected by and safe from the Heartbleed bug? 
Although the now infamous be patched by many companies in the Web tier , the data have failed OpenSSL encryption also affects an unknown number of network hardware from companies such as Cisco Systems.

Cisco has published a newsletter on your website, and I noticed that some of your network hardware and software , including routers , Ethernet switches, access points , and the most affected by the bug, a flaw in the software data encryption used by OpenSSL many websites around the world . Although most of this hardware would not be in the house of the average person, the hardware that Cisco identifies as vulnerable is probably used by private companies, governments and other organizations.

We arrived at Cisco for comment, and we asked if a website patched remains vulnerable to if the organization that runs the site is still using the hardware and / or services from Cisco to keep it running. Nigel Glennie , Senior Global Corporate Communications Cisco , responded to our request for comment , saying that the list of hardware and services concerned " not to be the kind of products that allow the exploitation of user data on a website. "

However, that seems to go against Cisco's own newsletter, which provides that " more Cisco products incorporate a version of OpenSSL package affected by a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to recover the memory in blocks of 64 kilobytes of a connected client or a server. " well, the newsletter also states that" many described here may contain sensitive information, which may include private keys and passwords. "

Digital Trends is currently waiting to clarify the apparent discrepancy between what is published Glennie and Cisco security advisory.
