Caller ID Spoofing Becomes Easy

Recommended Posts

objekt writes "According to an article in USA Today, Caller ID spoofing has become much easier in the last few years. Millions of people have Internet telephone equipment that can be set to make any number appear on a Caller ID system. And several websites have sprung up to provide Caller ID spoofing services, eliminating the need for any special hardware. For instance, Spoofcard.com sells a virtual 'calling card' for $10 that provides 60 minutes of talk time. The user dials a toll-free number, then keys in the destination number and the Caller ID number to display. The service also provides optional voice scrambling, to make the caller sound like someone of the opposite sex."slashdot?g=4026

Just the typical idea of hackers outpacing technology. I'm surprised Skype doesn't play nicer with Caller ID to be honest, or allow you to set your number as your cell number or something if you don't have SkypeIn.
