Re: DDOS Attacks - Is Any VoIPP More Immune ?

said by nitzan:

You guys are thinking regular DDOS attacks - at least in this case it wasn't a regular attack. CallCentric's "pipes" haven't been clogged - it's the registration servers that became overloaded. This has nothing to do with bandwidth or lack thereof.

Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't more than quickly perused the CC outage thread so was unaware of this info.

All the same, it's helpful to know which VSPs are investing resources and being proactive in protecting their systems. Since there are DDoS vulnerabilities unique to VoIP, is there a working group sharing information to help providers stay up-to-date on the latest threats, and, if so, who is actively participating?

This sort of information needn't be cloak-and-dagger.
