According to Baxter, software updates to disable Telnet and FTP (CVE-2022-26392) are in process. Software updates addressing the format string attack (CVE-2022-26393) are included in WBM version 20D30 and all other WBM versions authentication is already available in Spectrum IQ (CVE-2022-26394).
Public and Factory software images can be updated from the Embedded portal (HTTP or USB update methods) to the Factory software image only.To update STB to Public image (provided in Releases at soft.infomir.com) it is necessary to use Bootloader menu Upgrade Tools (USB Bootstrap, MC Upgrade, and so on).Updating STB to custom/other software images (that differs from the factory one) is performed in the Embedded portal (HTTP, USB) or in the MiddleWare menu. The following instructions should be taken into account:
A multicasting update is performed from the Bootloader menu. This update method can only be used to install the public software versions (Public image) of the required STB model, those are located in the STB software release or created by users independently according to the instructions of the STB manufacturer.The following utilities can be used as a means to multicast update files on the local network:
The multicast-update process takes no more than 15 minutes. Successful upgrade finishes by STB reboot and new software version installation. If updating does not end timely (due to improper settings, network failure, etc.), STB does not exit multicast- update by itself. To exit multicast-update you should reboot the STB.
POST forms have been developed for law enforcement agencies to consider as part of the peace officer and public safety dispatcher selection processes. To ensure that the forms meet the requirements of all local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations, and because laws, rules and regulations are regularly changed and amended, agencies should ensure that their own legal counsel review and approve the forms prior to use.
Employees of POST participating departments or presenter training entities desiring access to POST's secure system for POST transactions and reports, may apply for access by completing the appropriate Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) access application.
The Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system allows POST-participating agencies and course presenters to submit and process information to POST via a secure website. The system also provides users with immediate access to various reports. Three functions are currently available through EDI:
* Notice Of Appointment/Termination (NOAT): Agencies may submit notices of appointment and termination transactions and generate agency reports through the EDI system. Using the EDI system eliminates the need to mail hardcopy forms to POST. Please complete an Electronic Data Interchange Access Application (doc) for each person requesting access to the system. Signatures of the applicant and the agency's chief executive or his/her authorized designee are required on the application.
Software startups are challenging endeavours, with various road blocks on their path to success. The current understanding of the challenges that software startups may encounter is very limited. In this paper, we use the research framework of learning and product development stages to analyse the key challenges that software startups have to deal with at different life cycle stages, from problem definition to solution validation and from concept to mature product. Based on an analysis of the empirical data collected by a large survey of 4100 startups, we find out that what perceived as biggest challenges by software startups do vary across different life cycle stages. Building product is the biggest obstacle for software startups, even though its significance decreases when the learning focuses of the startups move from problem to solution and their products mature. Business related challenges such as customer acquisition and scaling are more noticeable at the later stages. Our study raises the awareness of these challenges and suggests to tackle right challenges at the right time.
Startups are newly created companies that aspire to grow fast in extreme uncertainty. They are considered one of the key drivers of economic growth . But what is also often underlined is the alarmingly high failure rate of startups. Sixty percent of startups do not survive in the first five years, whilst seventy five percent of venture capital funded startups fail . This demonstrates that startups are very challenging endeavours. It is especially true for software startups. According to Sutton , software startups are characterized by little or no operating history. Most of them are young and immature. There is a serious lack of time and resource. Moreover, they are subject to multiple influences from an environment that is extremely dynamic, unpredictable and even chaotic. A good understanding of the challenges that software startups have to cope with can help entrepreneurs to be better prepared when confronted by them, and to overcome them eventually.
However, the current Software Engineering (SE) literature offers very limited understanding of the challenges in the context of software startups. A very few number of studies have investigated them in specific areas such as decision making , or user experience design . A broader view has been taken in our previous study , which examines the key challenges emerging from different areas of early stage software startups. What left unexplored are the challenges faced by software startups at later stages, and how the challenges differ across a startup life cycle. Based on this observation, our study aims at offering a complete and comprehensive understanding of the key challenges in software startups. To this end, we adopted the research framework of learning and product development stages to analyse the key challenges faced by software startups. The main research question asked in our study is:
To answer the research question, we draw upon the empirical data obtained from a large-scale survey of worldwide software startups conducted between 2013 and 2014. The responses from 4100 software startups were included in the data analysis. The main results of our study is a comprehensive list of challenges faced by software startups at different stages and the contextual understanding of them in terms of learning and product development stages.
The rest of the paper is organized as follows: in Sect. 2, the related work are presented drawing upon relevant software engineering and business literature. Section 3 provides more details on the survey. It is followed by the presentation of the findings in Sect. 4, which are further discussed in Sect. 5, together with the reflection on the limitations of the study. The paper is summarized in Sect. 6 outlining the future research.
As Bosch et al.  point out, in order to understand the many challenges that software startups face, there is need to understand what a software startup is. An increasingly accepted definition of startup is from Ries , a human institution designed to deliver a new product or service under the conditions of extreme uncertainty. This definition highlights the characteristic of no or limited history that a software startup has , and the chaotic environment it operates in. However, the definition does not emphasize the intention of a startup to find a scalable and sustainable business model , which is a key distinguishing characteristic from established small businesses.
There are few studies that investigate the challenges faced by software startups in SE research field [9, 10], due to the nascent nature of software startup as a research area. One study that touches upon the challenges in early-stage startups is Bosch et al. . One of the two research questions the study explores is what are the typical challenges when finding a product idea worth scaling. They conducted qualitative interviews with the practitioners in nine startup companies. The interviewees confirm that it is very difficult to know how to work in a straight forward manner in early stage startups, and that decision-making support is limited. However no other challenges have been mentioned and the focus of the study itself is less on investigating the challenges and more on developing a methodology to support multiple product ideas being investigated in parallel.
Another study is focused on the specific challenges software startups confront with respect to user experience design, an increasingly important aspect of software engineering. Based on an interview study with eight startups on their approaches to user experience work, Hokkanen and Väänänen-Vainio-Mattila  discover several user experience related challenges, including collecting meaningful information from users or customers, applying right method for collecting user feedback, and approaching right set of users.
This study is based on a large survey that was employed to explore different aspects of software startups. For the purpose of this study, we only used a subset of the questions in the whole survey. These questions are composed of three parts. In the first part, the respondents were asked to provide background information about their startups, including the principal business domains, the countries they work in, and their roles within their startups. The second part is composed of the questions related to the learning stages and product development stages. Each question should be answered with a single choice from a set of predefined options as described in Sect. 2.2. In the third part, the participants were asked to provide three most significant challenges they perceived recently when working on their startups, ranked as biggest, second biggest and third biggest. Each question in this part should also be answered with a single choice from a set of predefined challenges. To obtain the set of challenges, various online forums related to entrepreneurship were searched. However, one open option was given when each challenge question was asked. If a respondent could not find a suitable option from the list, there was a possibility to specify a different challenge. The list of survey questions relevant to this study can be found in Appendix A. 350c69d7ab
