VoIP Fraud Takes Its ‘Toll’

VoIP toll fraud remains among the fastest-growing problems facing carriers and their customers. Toll fraud happens when attackers infiltrate networks and call control systems, then hijack them to make long-distance, international phone calls and they redirect inbound calls to a media gateway to gain unauthorized use of a VoIP network. The dangers rise with the economy and companies’ paring back security IT spending.
