Telephone hackers hit where it hurts: your wallet
Telephone hacking is unauthorized or fraudulent activities that can affect your telephone system, and potentially cost your business significant amounts of money and resources if they occur. Unfortunately, most of the times the owner of the PBXisn’t aware of the “hacking” until an enormous bill from their toll provider arrives or malicious events start occurring via their phone system.
Why do these activities occur?
Telephone hackers can infiltrate vulnerable PBX systems to make international and long distance calls, listen to voicemail or monitor conversations. Victims of hacked PBX systems unknowingly allow the hackers to “sell” the use of their telephone system to others or provide the hackers with an opportunity to maliciously reprogram the system.
