[post by JPRANGI on didforsale.com] This week one of our customer was attacked by more than 10000 Unique IPs. These hackers try to register on your system using some random username and easy to crack password. Few week back I wrote few tips on securing your asterisk servers.
Even if you took all the steps to secure your asterisk, still you dont want these attackers to flood your system with dummy registration requests. Use iptables and easy to implement shell script to block these attackers. You can easily block flooding traffic to your system. Iptables, can be used to filter IP traffic, provides high level packet filtering. Use the shell script below and setup a cron and have a good night sleep. The script will automatically block the IPs flooding your Asterisk system with failed registration requests.

Each Tech Tips episode starts out with an in-depth tutorial covering one of the many awesome features of Asterisk. After the tutorial we open up the floor for general Q&A. You’re welcome to ask about the topic of the week or any other Asterisk-related questions you might have. We’ll have a number of Asterisk experts available to answer questions. This week we’ve “Calling with Google” tutorial.
TELE DATA Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the AMIgo suite of components and controls for Microsoft .NET.
AMIgo offers a high level access to the Asterisk Manager Interface (AMI) and several users controls which give a visual status of the PBX elements and allows to interact with the extensions, channels, calls, queues, agents and conferences and to create, edit and manage them.
The AMIgo suite can be used to integrate telephony functions for Asterisk in your .NET application, (written in any of the .NET supported languages: C#, Visual Basic, C++ ...) or to build a full featured Asterisk control panel or to build specialised applications that make use of the AMI.
This last round of testing took a bit longer then we first had planned for and part of that was due to some issues we uncovered while doing cross-version testing on Asterisk (1.4, 1.6, and 1.8). This new version (1.5.4) should be compatible with the latest builds of Asterisk 1.4, 1.6, and 1.8.
Here are some of the fixes and improvements you'll find in version 1.5.4 Beta:
* FIXED: Issue with Get Digits step not working with certain versions of Asterisk
* FIXED: Issue with Place Call and Asterisk 1.6 and 1.8
asterCC is a software package, in which we provide two asterisk solutions for now:
* asterCRM, an open source contact center solution for asterisk
* asterBilling, a realtime billing solution for asterisk, could be used for hosted callshop, asterisk pbx billing all above in the package will use a linux daemon script named astercc, which could grab realtime CDR from asterisk, and it’s welcomed that if you want to develop your own application based astercc daemon.
