VoIP (In)security: Italians Do It Better

Presented at The Last HOPE (2008), July 18, 2008, 10 p.m. (Unknown duration)

Various VoIP vulnerabilities will be described here using some real case histories. There will be a detailed explanation of how a small group of annoyed Italian VoIP hackers used the Chaos Computer Club phone network during the 2007 hacker camp for fun and profit. Also, the story of a disgruntled employee, ways to fool bosses, how a stupid joke can turn into a social engineering attack, and what the implications might have been had the group been malicious. Italian grappa will also be a subject of discussion.
