Last week, a vulnerability was disclosed affecting Linux, OS X and other Unix like systems worldwide, which allowed an unauthenticated remote user to craft a request to the Opengear embedded web service to run arbitrary shell commands.

Opengear's immediate response was to publish mitigation steps to disable the Web Management UI on untrusted networks. Shortly after, we released patched firmware for all current and legacy products. Opengear recommends this patch be applied immediately, for details please click here.

Risk UK State Of Ultimate Dependence (Pages 34 - 35)
Remote site management systems can monitor physical environments, detect security breaches, control access to a site, provide an audit trail and alert security and risk managers within seconds about any signs of physical tampering. Will they take the place of human intervention? Opengear CEO Rick Stevenson offers his views on the matter.
Wired Hop on the High Speed Bus
The first general purpose computer, known as ENIAC (circa 1964), was heralded as the "Giant Brain." It was literally larger than a dozen passenger buses and weighed about as much. It was made of tens of thousands of vacuum tubes and relays, hundreds of thousands of resistors and capacitors and millions of hand soldered joints. It operated at lightning speed, a whopping 0.1MHz. Every computer since then has employed a system known as a "bus" for transferring signals and data both internally and to peripherals. Opengear CTO Tony Merenda explains.
Opengear has management solutions for all environments, including branch offices, remote cabinets and data center racks with our brand new CM7100 Console Server.
