Cisco MARS 6.01 Patch Available

Cisco have released a patch, CS-MARS 6.0.1 3070, for users on MARS 6.0.1 release (3066).

Who should apply the Patch

1) Users who have the following devices reporting to MARS: Cisco Switch IOS, Cisco IPS
- User has a Cisco Switch-IOS configured to send syslogs to the MARS (CSCsu94548)
- User downloaded and installed MARS IPS packages S333, S351, or S354 from, or configured the dynamic autoupdate utility to download these packages (CSCsu96311)

2) Users who attempt to download raw messages from the database in the GMT+ timezone (CSCsv01999)
3) Users who make use of source/destination port ranking queries (CSCsq48971)

This patch is being released to address four issues

1) CSCsu94548 - None of the Cisco Switch-IOS syslog messages are parsed by MARS
2) CSCsu96311 - Need to fix missing/mis-mapped IPS events in database.
3) CSCsv01999 - Not able to retrieve raw message files using MARS GUI
4) CSCsq48971 - service filter for src/dest port ranking query displays all ports

I suggest you read the readme file before applying.
