The world's biggest maker of routers, Cisco, has suffered a huge cyber-attack following a breach in core devices which are used to route traffic around the Internet. 

Security researchers who uncovered the previously unknown attacks identified a highly sophisticated form of malicious software, which had been placed within routers made by Cisco, which is currently the world's top supplier. 

Hackers often attempt to attack routers due to being able to operate outside the perimeter of anti-virus, firewalls and detection software that is used by organizations to protect and safeguard Internet traffic. 

Having experienced this cyber attack, it is time now for Cisco to consider implementing System Hardening and Vulnerability Management in order to prevent future attacks.
