I have Cisco Anyconnect installed on one of my windows machines. This software remains installed at all times, but it is not used for as a vpn unless I need to access some work related resources. Is it possible to have Eddie installed and use when I'm not using Cisco. I understand that I would have to disconnect from Air/Eddie to briefly use Cisco. Basically what I am asking is would have two vpn softwares installed break anything?
Hello, I am not sure this is the right section for posting . As a newb of VPN, I would like to know if anybody has setup a CISCO RV325 router for working with AirVPN and if he could share method and settings...I am currently using ASUS DD-WRT firmware with AirVPN but I had a look at the CISCO emulator and at first sight it does not look so friendly :-( so any help is really appreciated :-) . I searched in the forum and I did not find any reference to this device . Do you think an appliance with pfsense would be more "safe", known the US approach to privacy matter? Thank you
People (who are involved in IT security in first place) read about the open port 32764 in routers from Cisco, Linksys, Netgear and Diamond having strange backdoor access to the configuration files of those routers. Long story short, there is a service listening on this port which accepts a variety of commands such as resetting the router or printing out all kinds of information, even passwords in plain text. Connecting to the router through telnet should return the string "ScMM" or "MMcS" if the service is running (it's for SerComm). It could be smart to check if your Cisco/Linksys/Netgear/Diamond router is listed here. Or use this python script. Or just connect to your router via telnet [your.router.ip] 32764 and see if you get one of the aforementioned strings back. Source #1 Source #2 ---- Update #1 ---- First statements of manufacturers Linksys and Netgear. Both of them allegedly are "going through all possible vulnerabilites" and will publish more information on this after they did some analyzing. Fact is that they didn't even warn the users of those routers... strange, too... Source ---- Update #2 ---- Cisco released a Security Advisory and is working on a fix. There are no workarounds so you have to wait for Cisco's update. ---- Update #3 ---- It's not over!
The following pictures are part of an article by Heise Online, referring to a book by Glenn Greenwald. The NSA intercepted packages containing Cisco routers in order to install spyware on it. ^ Proof ^ That happened when the spyware wasn't working like it should (Edit: Pictures were moved and renamed by heise's CDN; fixed <3)
