+ - How intercept calls on new Cisco phones->

Submitted by mask.of.sanity
mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "Researchers have demonstrated a series of exploits that turn Cisco IP phones into listening bugs, and could allow a denial of service attack capable of silencing a call centre.

It allows internal staff and competitors with a little publicly-available information to hijack the phones, wiretap calls and eavesdrop on confidential meetings.

The attacks work through a sequence of exploits against the latest Cisco phones enabled to run off the shelf.

Most people are vunerable, the researchers say, because they do not harden their systems in line with recommended security requirements."
