Thanks for all the feedback. I'm not really worried
about being vulnerable, as indeed any wise network
admin turns off the web interface for routers and
switches. More so, I was worried if my corp was being
specifically targetted or not. When you see 200+ IP's
hitting some specific machines on your network, I
would tend to worry about a potential DoS. From all
the replies, apparently it is more widespread and not
just after me. Thanks again.
