    Networking giant Cisco Systems warned customers on Wednesday about a security flaw that could compromise two products used to manage wireless local area network devices and data center switches.

    The company said in the warning posted on its Web site that a preset username and password coded into its Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE) and Hosting Solution Engine (HSE) could give attackers complete control of the devices. Attackers could use this control to add new users, modify details of existing users or even change the device's configuration, the company said.
