The Class of Service Manager is used to create objects used to assign permissions or restrictions to Outgoing Lines, Incoming Lines, Extensions, Feature Codes, or Applications.
Great care should be taken when configuring Class of Service objects to prevent unauthorized LD Usage.
Please refer to https://blog.scopserv.com/2012/06/important-security-settings-when-using-class-of-service-cos/ before configuring Class of Service objects.

As previously advised in the ScopServ blogs and ScopNEWS, CentOS 5 has now officially reached its End Of Life date. As a result, CentOS has officially shutdown their official repositories for CentOS EL5.
From now, if you are updating your existing ScopTEL EL5 packages this may cause errors similar to the following:
[root@pstn ~]# scopserv_yum update
==== scopserv_yum ====
— Executing yum…

This does not mean your installation is broken, it simply means that the official CentOS EL5 mirrors have been shut down. ScopServ has released a new scopserv-server package that uses vault.centos.org to maintain existing dependencies. This package will be automatically installed via scopserv_yum update and if the scopserv-server package is updated you will not see this error the next time you do scopserv_yum update.
Here are the options to resolve the error (pick one):
Since CentOS 5 is officially End Of Life ScopServ highly recommends that you upgrade your installation to CentOS 6.
A failure to do so will put your installation at risk since CentOS EL5 is no longer supported.
Please follow the official instructions to upgrade your installation at
ScopServ will not be responsible for any liabilities caused by a failure to upgrade to a supported Operating System. Additionally, ScopServ has deprecated all support for EL5 pacakges.
If you are looking to have ScopServ support connect to your system remotely, please be aware that we no longer support TeamViewer. Our preferred remote desktop software is AnyDesk. Download a ScopServ client from here
It is recommended that you read each Training Module in numerical order.

Updated glibc packages that fix one security issue are now available for ScopServ Distributions built on CentOS 5.
Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Critical security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.
The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries (libc), POSIX thread libraries (libpthread), standard math libraries (libm), and the Name Server Caching Daemon (nscd) used by multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly.
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in glibc’s __nss_hostname_digits_dots() function, which is used by the gethostbyname() and gethostbyname2() glibc function calls. A remote attacker able to make an application call either of these functions could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application. (CVE-2015-0235)
In order to protect your server and at the earliest convenience:
From the Linux shell execute (without quotations):
‘scopserv_yum update glibc* -y’
Ensure all updates have completed and then execute (without quotations)
The minimum package requirements are:
Today, we proudly annonce an update to ScopTEL PBX to support TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 in WebGUI when using SSL encryption in order to secure communication on the Management interface.
Since the release of TLSv1, many changes have happened to both the development of TLS and the known attacks against the cryptographic protocol. TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 were both released in the mid to late 2000s which fixed many problems seen in TLSv1 but, unfortunately, adoption was meager at best. This left the door open to many attacks against the protocols in use (namely SSLv3 and TLSv1) including BEAST, CRIME, various cipher renegotiation and rollback attacks, and attacks on the RC4 encryption cipher.
In order to use new encryption protocols, you simply need to go on Server -> Packages Manager and click on Update Now.
If you want to update from SSH, you can type :
scopserv_yum update httpd scopserv-server
In addition to https://blog.scopserv.com/2015/01/product-bulletin-scopserv-vulnerability-cve-2014-1691-january-26-2015/
If your installation cannot immediately and fully be upgraded as per the product bulletin.
You may use this minimal upgrade method to upgrade the required packages (but it highly recommended a full upgrade is performed):
From the Linux shell execute (without quotations) ‘scopserv_yum update scopserv scopserv-core scopserv-framework scopserv-server’
After all packages are successfully updated then from the Linux shell execute (without quotations) ‘service scopserv restart’
ScopServ, ScopTEL installations could be vulnerable to CVE-2014-1691.
Unsanitized variables are passed to the unserialize() PHP function. A remote attacker could specially-craft one of those variables allowing to load and execute code.
In order to protect a ScopTEL installation from this vulnerability you must update to scopserv-5.0.0-2 scopserv-core-184.108.40.206.20150126-1 scopserv-framework-220.127.116.11.20150126-1 and meet all other dependencies including php-pecl-json-1.2.1-5
It is highly recommended to perform a full update on each ScopServ, ScopTEL installation in order to simplify the upgrade procedure and also ensure all dependencies are met.
It is also highly recommended to reboot your server after the updates in order to ensure all services and scripts and have been updated.
From the Linux shell execute (without quotations) ‘scopserv_yum update’
And after the updates are completed execute (without quotations) ‘reboot’
