Thank you for sharing, this is very useful. A couple of weeks ago, posted this: https://community.indeni.com/discussions/topics/51220?auth_token=4660da71cc25ab4539028f40861f527e30fafd1e&page=1.


In the video, John mentioned that this issue is going to be around for a while, patches can help alleviate the problem. Vasilis is right, we shoud automate the detection of these vulnerabilities. I assume every equipment vendor will be putting out patches.


Thoughts?
