RICHARDSON, Texas -- Sipera VIPER Lab, operated by Sipera Systems, the leader in pure security for VoIP, mobile and multimedia communications, today disclosed nine threat advisories for WiFi/dual mode telephones from vendors including RIM, HTC, Samsung, Dell and D-Link. These threat advisories are in addition to the new SIP vulnerabilities published by Sipera VIPER Lab.
Sipera proactively identifies VoIP threats through its Sipera VIPER Lab, which is comprised of experienced VoIP application developers, architects, and engineers, operating 24/7/365 from Richardson, Texas, and Hyderabad, India. Every day, the dedicated VIPER Lab researchers identify new vulnerabilities and potential exploits in VoIP protocols, VoIP equipment and phones. They also scan web sites, blogs, discussion groups, and media outlets for evidence of known, suspected and new VoIP vulnerabilities and attacks.
These vulnerabilities are posted at http://www.sipera.com/viper as a service to Siperas customers and the general public. Sipera VIPER Lab follows a disclosure policy which notifies equipment vendors, in advance, of the potential vulnerabilities and works with each of these vendors to publish a response/fix or identify other solutions to these security issues.
VoIP security is just beginning to get more attention now that VoIP adoption has reached a tipping point in the last year. It is refreshing to see Siperas launch of VIPER Lab that will assuredly help promote and advance the state of VoIP security research and help raise the overall awareness of VoIP threats and corresponding best practices, said David Endler, chairman of the Voice over IP Security Alliance (VOIPSA), an industry consortium created to drive adoption of VoIP by promoting the current state of VoIP security research, VoIP security education and awareness, and free VoIP testing methodologies and tools.
