Cisco Catalyst 6000, 6500 Series and Cisco 7600 Series NAM Vulnerability

"Cisco Catalyst 6000, 6500 series and Cisco 7600 series that have a Network Analysis Module installed are vulnerable to an attack, which could allow an attacker to gain complete control of the system. Only Cisco Catalyst systems that have a NAM on them are affected. This vulnerability affects systems that run Internetwork Operating System(IOS) or Catalyst Operating System (CatOS)."

More information can be found here:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20070228-nam.shtml

"NAMs communicate with the Catalyst system by using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). By spoofing the SNMP communication between the Catalyst system and the NAM an attacker may obtain complete control of the Catalyst system."
