OMG!!! Our phone system has been hacked...and I have a 1 in 100 dial range on my switch. I have been abused by so many people this morning..... “You just rang my number...” “ if that is Rachel from the NBN - F@222 OFF “. So many oldies returning the call.
Most are ok once I explain, but GOD I am over explaining it was NOT me.
Can’t change password on Samsung system until my it guy can be ready to update it straight away....now he is not answering my calls.... I am going to have to raid the office bar for a drink.
.....there's a pretty good explanation hereHere's a question for any knowledgeable communication people out there, why was spoofing allowed/authorised in the first place? Or why wasn't a standard brought in that could at least identify and monetise spoofing?
I realise there may have been a very limited legitimate use for spoofing for some government agencies when it was first proposed, but surely it would have been forseeable that this technology was going to be mis-used?
