This warning and alert from our friends at Cisco.  I guess the message is “protect your admin password”.  Last time I looked, it was on a P-touch label attached to the top of the router.  Uh Oh!

“Attackers have been observed substituting Ciscos IOS bootstrap with a malicious ROMMON image after first accessing the companys IOS devices.”
