9-1-1 systems have multiple areas of vulnerability

Public Safety SmartBrief | Aug 27, 2014

Two hackers researching 9-1-1 systems found they are vulnerable in multiple ways, from problems with software and address databases to the possibility a hacker could launch a denial-of-service attack. Another problem could occur if someone discovered the phone numbers for public service answering points and tied up the phone lines. NENA is working to protect the security of those phone numbers on 9-1-1 recordings, said NENA's director of government affairs, Trey Forgety. Wired.com (08/21)
