There are probably a load of Ipecs phone systems out there in need of an updated software. These systems probably work just fine, but could be vulnerable to hacking, and could also benefit from improvements made to the software. Whilst the LG Ericsson Ipecs system has just hit end of life, you can certainly still get more life out of the old system by bringing the system to to last current version.
There were also some issues with phones not coming up after reboot, so you can also benefit from updating your handset and other module gateway's software.
A lot of these systems were sold by the big carriers here in Australia and they are not exactly pro active in follow up and keeping your system up to date.
Some of the earlier software is very susceptible to a heart bleed vulnerability. This bug can leave you wide open to hackers stealing your information and in the case of your PABX system, they could login and ghost your account and make unauthorised calls. I have heard of examples where phone systems have been hacked for over $10,000 dollars of calls in a weekend.
All very good reasons to get your system evaluated for and update, to get the best security and performance from your old phone system.
