VoIP Becomes the New Hideout for Drones

The Communications Research Network (CRN) issued a statement where they warn that VoIP will become the next generation technology to command bot nets.

The technology of VoIP allows the botnet masters to hide their identity completely making it nearly impossible to trace the origin of DDoS attacks, unlike the current way most botnets are commanded such as over IM networks or IRC.

The CRN recommends the use of open protocols to prevent this abuse.

VoIP networks are often encrypted as well, to maximize the privacy of the users on the network, as well as to prevent ISP’s filtering the traffic in favor of their own VoIP services.
