Apache on Cisco Switches

My network went down yesterday - 8 4006 and 2 6506 went down - rebooted. Cause of the problem , a firewall specialist ran a scan on Apache on the network - this caused all the switches to reload - is there any way to stop this - can be accompliced by configuring snmp access-lists and using different ports except port 80.Please advise

Re: Apache on Cisco Switches

Put the management VLAN and IP addresses for the switches on a different segment. If whatever the scan was doing plowed through a router to get to the switches, it sounds pretty nasty. Put a sniffer on the line and see exactly what is going on, that’s the first step for sure.

Re: Apache on Cisco Switches

Would it be possible to get a detail of exactly what scan and software he was running at the time. I would be very interested in knowing the explicit vulnerability that was hit. Have you opened a TAC case on this yet or alerted Cisco security?
