Lots of Press on Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS)

There has been a ton of press lately about Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS). There are real attacks occuring against 911 centers and financial contact centers. The targets are getting flooded with malicious calls that prevent legitmate users from accessing critical emergency or financial services. I will provide posts about the actual attacks and methods of attack mitigation. Interestingly, I am wrapping up a chapter on the new Hacking Exposed: VoIP and UC on this exact topic.

For now, here is a list of recent articles:
