Snom security vulnerabilities

    Just for info as there isn't much about this on the wider internet...


    Snom plays the risks down on their website, but the German government is recommending that people update their firmware (I actually saw it on a news flash on the train to work) and do not use the affected devices in the meantime.

    It is technically possible for an attacker to get root access to the phone and install manipulated firmware on it, firmware which would SURVIVE a factory reset of the device!! The attacker can listen in on calls and even open the mic and spy on a room where a phone is located.
