Google Calendar – Can Only Share Calendar In See Only Free/Busy (Hide Details) Mode

This morning I was attempting to share one of my Google Apps Google Calendars with my default Gmail account with full access rights however it kept changing the sharing mode from Manage Changes and Manage Sharing to See Only Free/Busy (Hide Details). At first I thought it had to do with the calendar I was sharing too already being shared back to this calendar with lower calendar event rights however after I deleted all traces of the calendar I was still running into the same issue. Turns out the issue was in the Google Apps dashboard for the Google Apps Calendar I was attempting to share to the normal Google account. Below I describe the issue in more detail and what settings need to be modified in the Google Apps dashboard to allow you to share Google Apps Calendars with full admin privileges.

OCS Version 0.2 Release – Cisco Router Default Password Scanner

Recently I wrote an article on cisco-ocs from Backtrack Linux and provided examples of what it did as well as a bug where if a higher privilege was provided to the vty ports it would note the router was not vulnerable. In that scenario the router was even more vulnerable because the initial login provides enable privileges. Anyhow fast forward five days and the developer, known by OverIP, reached out to me to get more details so he could fix the bug and discuss expanding Cisco OCS’s capabilities. I am happy to announce Cisco OCS version 0.2 which fixes the bug mentioned in the previous article. More details are provided below as well as information about possible future releases.
