Yup have noticed it here as well. Several hundred source IPs now, last
couple of days... getting rather annoying. had to lower the sev. on the IDS
systems to stop from sending me pages for every incident.

Cisco vulnerability scanning increase

We recently picked up a spike in TCP 80 scanning against one of our
netblocks.
Looking at the payload, it appears to be a Cisco vulnerability scanner.
/level/16/exec/-///pwd
Numerous random source IP's across various netblocks, makes it appear to be
bot related potentially. Anyone else seeing this type of activity?
