Since a month, my Internet connection runs via a Fritz!Box. I use VOIP. and ADSL. Yesterday, all of a sudden, inbound telephonecalls were no longer possible. Everything else went smoothly as before.

The helpdesk of my provider resolved the problem within half an hour, and everything was quickly in order.

New firmware had to be installed in my Fritz!box. I did this.

I realise, of course, that detecting this error is probably beyond the reach of Secunia, since the problem lies within firmware inside my Fritz!Box. I scanned my PC for all files containing `Fritz!`for a version number. None appears to be interesting.

Is there some solution Secunia can provide?

Kind regards,

Gert de Korte

Last edited on 9th Aug, 2010 09:24 Hi,

You are correct in assuming the PSI cannot update firmware, as this is usually a more elaborate process.

Keep in mind that the PSI is not a general update checker. It does not intend to patch everything on your system to the newest version. The PSI scans your system to update versions with known security problems to the latest secure version. While we do have a few Fritz! products in our database, none of them appear to have advisories linked to them.

If you want for your Fritz!Box to be detected, try creating a software suggestion for a revelant executeable.

As for your general connectivity problems, there is unfortunately nothing we can do.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your answer. It was exactly as I expected.

I do not have any general concuctivity problem.

My only problem was, that incoming VOIP-calls via my Fritz!box were suddenly reported back to the caller as me being "unreacheable", while my Fritz!Box reported no problem to me.

This is a Fritz!Box firmware problem.

I will contact them and may contact you further on this matter.

Kind regards,

Gert de Korte
