Cisco kit being taken down by faulty resistors

Some Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASAs) could fail after 18 months due to faulty resistors which cost just a few cents apiece.

As reported by The Register, the company has released a field notice in which it says that models ASA5508 and ASA5516 “might fail in operation, after 18 months or longer, due to a damaged component.”
