Wireless Headset for Office Phones Hacked Imprimer

"From the article, "In offices all over the world, users are becomingly increasingly enamored with those wireless "hands-free" headsets that allow the speaker to move around the office while continuing a conversation on the phone. But have you ever wondered how secure those headsets are? So have we. Recently, we had the chance to find out — and what we discovered was downright scary."



An auditing team used a simple radio scanner to listen to conversation from across the street where a company office is located. The problem source is those wireless headset that more and more people use in order to be able to walk around the office while on the phone.

It seems many of those headset use no encryption or that it is turned off by default. If you use such headsets and you are concerned about security, we suggest the following:

  • Make sure encryption is turned on and that it is strong enough. Being able to change the encryption key often by renegotiating a new one automatically would be even better to prevent hackers from cracking keys.
  • In doubts, have your office location audited by security experts.
