FreePBX vulnerability http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/
The FreePBX team has bee made aware of a critical Zero-Day Remote Code Execution and Privilege Escalation exploit related to the legacy “FreePBX ARI Framework module/Asterisk Recording Interface (ARI)”. The exploit can compromise any user who has installed FreePBX prior to version 12, and users who have updated to FreePBX 12 from a prior version and did not remove the legacy FreePBX ARI Framework module.
The exploit allows anyone including hackers to bypass authentication and gain full “Administrator” access to the FreePBX server when the ARI module is present, which could be used to grant the attacker full remote code execution access as the user running the Apache process.
The FreePBX team has released updates for users on FreePBX versions 2.9, 2.10, 2.11 and 12. For users of FreePBX versions 2.8 and prior need to be upgraded a supported version. This could easily be done through Module Admin which will remove the vulnerability. Versions 2.11 and 12 are the only officially supported versions of FreePBX so whay not be current.
FreePBX is warning users of a critical RCE vulnerability

Before Buying A Used iPhone, Make Sure "Activation Lock" Is Disabled And The iPhone is Completely Erased.
Used iPhone, Activation Lock snapvoip.blogspot.com
Every time a new iPhone comes into the market like the iPhone 6, even with it's troubles like Dyegate, Apple lovers stand in lines to get their phones. Once they do, the market is flooded with used iPhones.
If you are buying an iPhone (like iPhone 5, which I am planing to keep, rather than upgrading to iPhone 6) make sure that the owner disables the Activation lock, before you complete the transaction.
If you are the owner, you can follow our "Reset Your iPhone to Factory Setting" to completely reset the iPhone or any other iOS device.
If you are the buyer, please check the current Activation Lock status of the iPhone you are buying by visiting icloud.com/activationlock from any device with a browser.
IMEI ir the Serial Number could be found by going to
Settings > General > About and scrolling down.
Also as a general rule follow these steps to make sure that the iPhone you are purchasing will be usable;
- Power up the iPhone, iPad or whatever the iOS you are buying..
- If you are presented with the pass code lock screen or the Home screen appears, the device hasn't been erased. Ask the owner to erase all the settings. Don't buy an used iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch if it has not been erased.
- Once the owner reset / erase the iphone, immediately begin the device setup process.
- You will be selecting a language of your choice, followed by a country, and connecting to a network, Once that is done, the device will begin activation Process. If it asks for for the previous owner’s Apple ID and password, the device is still linked to their account. At this point you can ask the previous owner to enter their password. But get the owner to remove the device from their account by signing in to icloud.com/find. Make sure that the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch has been removed from the previous owner’s account, before handing the money over!
