Cisco warns of Unified Communications Manager flaw

Cisco has made available a free software fix for affected customers

Cisco Wednesday released its first new security alert of the year: a warning that its Cisco Unified Communications Manager - formerly CallManager - contains a heap overflow vulnerability in the Certificate Trust List that could allow a hacker to cause a denial-of-service attack or execute arbitrary code.

Cisco has made available a free software fix for affected customers, and a workaround is available in its security advisory.

The products that are vulnerable are:

-- Cisco Unified CallManager 4.0

-- Cisco Unified CallManager 4.1 Versions prior to 4.1(3)SR5c

-- Cisco Unified Communications Manager 4.2 Versions prior to 4.2(3) SR3

-- Cisco Unified Communications Manager 4.3 Versions prior to 4.3(1) SR1

Cisco says it is not aware of any public announcements or malicious use of the vulnerability, which was reported to Cisco from TippingPoint.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
