Ever since VoIP first came on the scene, there were fear mongering reports saying that you shouldn't use VoIP because it will get hacked. However, in all these years, we've yet to hear a serious report of VoIP getting hacked -- and, even the scary warnings about VoIP hackers have quieted down. Yet, here we are, with a security company now claiming that 2008 will be the year that VoIP gets hacked. Of course, that security company is also selling a solution to prevent VoIP systems from getting hacked, so perhaps you should take the prediction with a rather large grain of salt. So which is it: is hacking VoIP networks not that easy? Is the fear overblown? Or have we just been lucky?
