Re: IOS Support for Catalyst End of Life

You should be able to upgrade fine to 12.0(5)WC8 which has a fix for the IP4 vulnerability. The following page should help

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/473/36.shtml

If you encounter any issues, during upgrade, save the entire sequence and email me at prkrishn@cisco.com
