Re: [PEN-TEST] War Dialling

If you're doing a test with full assistance from the target, get a list of telcom providers from them, and an executed 
approval letter to get the Customer Service Records (CSRs) from each telcom provider. This will list all the telcom 
lines, both those that may terminate on a PBX, and all those old analog lines that everyone has forgotten about, but 
that may terminate on service modems for who knows what equipment. You may be surprised by what gets found.

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
