Dear IT Professionals and Business Decision Makers,

Cisco has published a CRITICAL vulnerability on their Cisco ASA firewalls.  This vulnerability is on any ASA with a VPN setup on it.  The fix is to upgrade to the latest firmware 9.1.7.

This vulnerability directly impacts many of you!  Please read the following Cisco Security Advisory:

Hackers are using this attack now that it has been published:

Each upgrade will take time as the automated upgrades typically break the VPNs.

Again, to fix this vulnerability upgrade to the latest patch firmware 9.1.7.

This is a very critical vulnerability that cannot be ignored!  If you do not have the resources to complete this firmware upgrade immediately please reach out to your PEI Account Manager or call

(303) 823-4321.

Thanks,

Adam Lee, PEI Marketing Director
