It cheers to me to announce that in a moment will be available the Web of the SunCanary group, a resident user group of QNX in the Canary Islands. From this Web we will try to impel the use of QNX RTOS in the Hispanic world, in addition, we will create repository in which all and each one of the members of the group contributed their applications, compiled of the network or own creation.

All this to present east Hispanic-America operating system, starting off of the Canary Islands, like Colón made to discover the american continent.

Local Root exploit discovered for QNX6

Submitted by noc on

An anonymous user just posted on about a QNX6 root exploit. It is known to work for all the QNX6.x releases.

Rumor says there are several other root exploits available for QNX6. Keep an eye on for more disclosures.

It is said that those exploits were fixed internally in QSSL but for some unknown reasons, they were not included in the latest QNX 6.2 release.
