IBM cautions VoIP attacks on the increase

IBM recently warned the technology industry that “cyber attacks using the VoIP protocol Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) have been growing this year accounting for over 51% of the security event activity analyzed in the last 12 months.”

The most notable increase seems to have occurred in the second half of 2016, with notable spikes in July and September.

According to the recent IBM report from their Security Intelligence group, the majority of the events are pre-attack information gathering meant to understand the capabilities and information of potential targets. IBM reminds organizations about the inherent dangers of VoIP technology fraud, including caller ID spoofing, firmware uploads, toll fraud, and DDoS attacks.
