spoof voip to hack into it

Callerid is said to protect voip networks, but there is a site where you can spoof your number - although not free - (http://www.camophone.com/  and in the wings www.telespoof.com ) and do things like described further below. For the moment these services are only available for us businesses and services.
 
In August, Secure Science Corporation warned that hackers can use caller I.D. spoofing to break into the voice mail boxes of T-Mobile subscribers. A U.S. wireless company with 15.4 million customers, T-Mobile permits users to check voice mail without entering a passcode, as long as they're calling from their own phone -- an easy matter to fake with caller I.D. spoofing. http://www.securityfocus.com/news/9822
 
Hackers have discovered that the handy feature that tells you who's calling before you answer the phone is easily manipulated through weaknesses in Voice over IP (VoIP) programs and networks. They can make their phone calls appear to be from any number they want, and even pierce the veil of Caller I.D. blocking to unmask an anonymous phoner's unlisted number... Most subscribers have come to take Caller I.D. for granted, and some financial institutions even use Caller I.D. to authenticate customers over the phone.
To do this you only need the linux open source pbx software Asterisk
