  • Change the Com.X GUI password from the default.

  • Log the PBX console messages to /var/log/asterisk/messages and monitor this periodically. A large number of rejected VoIP registrations may indicate an attack on the system.

  • Use pins and pin sets to protect international and high-cost outbound routes, requiring the caller to know the pin in order to place a call.

  • Disable feature codes for administrative features, or change the feature codes to access those features to something other than the default. (E.g. ChanSpy, ZapBarge).

  • Require all users to set their voicemail pin and user portal login passwords to something other than the default.

  • Regularly backup the PBX configuration and valuable recordings.
