Hello everyone,
I’m posting to make you aware of a critical vulnerability found in the DIAL AllStar image. In DIAL, there is an insecure user called debian. This user can be easily hacked, leading to system compromise.
RasLink (including the Debian port) is *not* affected.
However, I’d advise you to please, please, please, KEEP YOUR SYSTEMS UPDATED!
If you need help running “system-update”, please let me know.

I'm one of the founders of JL Applied Technologies. If its technology in nature, and has existed since 1996, I've probably used it! I've used DOS, Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, and Ubuntu Linux. In 2007, I started using Ubuntu full time. I'm an amateur radio operator, and hold the call sign W0JRL. Feel free to join me on the air. If you have access to an Allstar node, dial 29997. If not, I'm on EchoLink as W0JRL-R. If you're not an amateur radio operator, you can call me on my sip server. My sip address is:
