Really Scary Telecoms Stuff? Nah – telephony's just an app

There's actually another very real danger if you host your PBX outside of your network

If you have a local PBX on your LAN, it doesn't matter how secure your internal credentials are, unless you're very stupid, nobody will be able to pose as an internal phone.

How if you have a cloud PBX all you need is your credentials to pose as an internal phone... and if you use an app, that means that you store your credentials on a highly insecure device.

This is a real danger as calling someone involves money. Perhaps not when you call someone locally, but there are providers like wpremiums.com which offer your premium rate numbers all over the world. Just get one of those numbers and call them over your snitched PBX login.
