Homeland Security Dept’s PBX hacked?

Published on Aug 21, 2008 in

Ouch! ZDNet have a short article about a misconfigured PBX making 400 calls to some of the hottest countries around: Afghanistan, India, Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Very ugly .. hope that the details emerge. If anyone has more details email me or post here.

Promotional message: SIPVicious is free - test your SIP based PBX before someone else does ;-)

Update: Apparently it consisted of voicemail hacking

  • you know that thing from the 90s. So no VoIP or SIP involved, just plain old school default pin cracking.
