I have read somewhere that dial-up questions using
modems are inherently insecure. Can somebody please
explain to me why it is so?

Thanks,

proly because of +++ath0 (ping -p 2b2b2b415448300d <target>) you can write a pattern that will disconect the modem then make it dial whatever number you want.
add S2=255 to your init string to fix it
works with most  hardware modems (i don't think it works with winmodems)
