An orgizational phone book?
PS. Why would you only look at IT? What about all those open user modems
on the desktop?

Subject: War Dialling
Being a new member to this list I am not sure how much this topic has been
aired. How ever I wonder if anyone has any ideas, or pointers on how they
would eliminate irrelevant numbers on a war dialling exercise.
If acme.com, a global company, has a very wide range of numbers how is it
best to seek out the numbers that are relevant to the IT departments.
Obviously there is the social engineering approach, however I am interested
in any other ideas.
Apologies if this has been discussed B4
