Hackers making calls on a Norstar

Hackers making calls on a Norstar

I have a Norstar account that has been hacked. Other than building a restriction blocking 011 (international calling). Should I do anything else to stop this from happening again?

Thank you,

RE: Hackers making calls on a Norstar

Passwords Passwords Passwords. I can't say it enough. Hackers use the voice mail to dial out. So have ALL users change passwords in their voice mail make sure they are strong.

In addition:
Disable Out Dialing in the voice mail except for those who really need it.

On the phone system, restrict lines from 011 and *67.

I did not know Perry had done one, here is mine too which is a little more updated and how they forward the lines at night and cancel it in the morning using Off Prem Notify:

Yes passwords indeed are the first defence, so if Callpilot 1xx or Callpilot on BCM use that Non Trivial Passwords check box.
