11 million euros of damage from VoIP hackers

The topic of hacking VoIP gateways does not sound that often. Even if you look at the latest hacker conferences, then the fashion on this topic has calmed down a bit. However, there are quite a few people on the Web who are well versed in the subject and know how to monetize these skills.

A good example is the recent story about two Romanian hackers Catalina Zleit and Christian Siyuvat, who managed to make more than a million euros on VoIP. The approaches used were not too intricate. The guys scanned the ranges of IP addresses with execsions, which were weak passwords. Probably no one would have noticed that if they simply used the accounts they received for free calls. But the damage from their activities amounted to approximately 11 million euros.
