Possibly off topic - Voice DDoS?
Verizon wireless tells me there is no mechanism to block incoming phone calls destined to one of their wireless phones. IE, if you are getting harrased you are screwed, and must change your number or take 'legal action', per Verizon. And also, there was no way for them to trace 'unavailable' or non caller-ID bearing calls.
To get any fancy sort of call tracing, I'm fairly sure Verizon would have to get the police/FBI involved, which I doubt is a quick and easy process, or appropriate for a small scale incident.
So, this leads me to wonder. Whats to stop someone from DDoSing someone's voice lines rendering a business unavailable who's mission critical process is inbound telephony? Increased network load would also become an inderect result, damaging network availability in general.
I'm certianlly not the 1st person to think of this, but it does have some intersting implecations. If in fact there is no easy way to "null route" calls from a particular source(s) to a wireless customer, the door is fairly open to crippeling a person(s)/company.
