Which is worse:
  (A) "Secure Shell (SSH) servers are vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS)"
or
  (B) "The SSH server in Cisco IOS is disabled by default."

Jeff: Could be worse... Could be Cisco.
At least Microsoft tries to release patches without proding from
Blackhat's own Lynndie England, played by Michael Lynn...

[And if the above does not start a flame war, nothing will!  Don't make me
resort to photoshop'ing Michael's head onto England's body and having
him point to Cisco!]
