I've found that it is always best to go directly to the PBX switch
administrators to get the range of numbers that are valid. You can then use
ranges of a data file of valid numbers in tools like ToneLoc or THCscan.

Subject: [PEN-TEST] 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
