VoIP Soon To Be A Target For…

A new book entitled “Hacking Exposed VoIP” warned that VoIP, which is becoming more and more popular, is the likely next target for hackers. Co-author David Endler, director of security at 3Com Corp.’s TippingPoint division in Austin, said that VoIP has been used for phishing. SecureLogix chief technology officer Mark Collier, who co-wrote the book, expects more vulnerabilities in the future such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, which could be damaging to VoIP systems. Privacy, Endler says, could also be compromised as injecting noise into or spamming over VoIP communications are not that hard to do.
