Purported lack of VoIP security creates niche?

The Register reports that sensitive VoIP data may be vulnerable to attacks because of lax efforts in securing networks. The study comes from scanit, a security auditing vendor who I’ve personally never heard of, and none too surprising also does security implementation work.

The crux of the argument is that freely downloadable software can be used to tap voice calls and record tones, something people have been doing since the 3600 club was around and Kevin Mitnick was still on the run.

…not that I am skeptical of this report (or the PR crew that got it placed).
