Let the IPv6 Vulnerabilities Begin

Cisco last week released a slew of security advisories. One that specifically caught my eye is a Denial of Service vulnerability due to "improper processing of malformed IP version 6 (IPv6) packets by Cisco IOS Software."

I've been wondering how long it would take for the exploits to start to trickle in with IPv6. One can only imagine how many vulnerabilities Windows will have with IPv6 enabled by default. Expect to see more of these in the future as IPv6 becomes more prevalent.

The alert details are available here.
