Overheard: Using caller ID spoofing to listen to someone else’s voicemail

rick_fiore.gif Another problem that has arisen with Caller ID Spoofing is when a voicemail service uses only CID to authenticate a mailbox holder and does not ask for the pin. You can actually get in and listen to messages on someone else’s account. I have seen it done with a mobile phone’s voicemail account on a prepaid phone from Cingular (now AT&T).
