I know I am a broken record, or kicking a dead horse, or some other analogy about stating the same obvious thing over and over, but as the world adopts VoIP for voice communications they need to be aware of the security risks and take the appropriate steps to protect their communications and their networks. Sipera Systems has published a list of the Top 5 VoIP Vulnerabilities.

Take a look at Sipera’s Top 5 VoIP Vulnerabilities in 2007 list for more details.
