Our company’s PBX system recently got hacked. I am laughing my ass of because the arrogant prick who is in charge of the system just showed how big a dumb ass he is. He apparently left all the defaults in place. (There are no victims – only volunteers). I have heard about a lot of this going on and had thought it was probably foreign students or the like trying not to get phucked over by the phone company. (if it doesn’t cost me per minute for an internet connection that connects me overseas – why they hell does it for a phone call???)
What’s got me is that all the calls went to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and the Philippines. (As my paranoia starts setting in). I start to think about who (in general) may be doing this. Do people hack these things then post the numbers somewhere or is it a small group doing it for other purposes? Any thoughts on this?
