- We use 4 levels:
- PATCH NOW: Typically used where we see immediate danger of exploitation. Typical environments will want to deploy these patches ASAP. Workarounds are typically not accepted by users or are not possible. This rating is often used when typical deployments make it vulnerable and exploits are being used or easy to obtain or make.
- Critical: Anything that needs little to become "interesting" for the dark side. Best approach is to test and deploy ASAP. Workarounds can give more time to test.
- Important: Things where more testing and other measures can help.
- Less Urgent: Practices for servers such as not using outlook, MSIE, word etc. to do traditional office or leisure work.
- The rating is not a risk analysis as such. It is a rating of importance of the vulnerability and the perceived or even predicted threatatches.

Update: Cert.org corrected it's advisory. The GS105PE is affected, not the GS108PE as indicated earlier. The NVD CVE entry still lists the old model number .
Yet another hard coded password. This time it's Netgear's Prosafe Switch (GS105PE) running firmware version 188.8.131.52 and earlier . The pre-configured username is "ntgruser" and the password is "debugpassword". If you have any Netgear equipment, it may be worthwhile checking for this username and password even if your device isn't listed as vulnerable.
Sadly, at this point there doesn't appear to be a solution to the problem, other then returning the switch to the store and buying another one if you can.
CVE Number: CVE-2014-2969
