    Does anyone know if there is a way to do a DDoS attack on a landline or cell phone- or something more evil to do to someones phone? Thanks.

    Strange but interesting. I never heard of this before and can't see how it's possible, at least not yet. Don't give people any ideas.

    You need to look into learning Voip specifically how to run asterisk.

    Add in some throw away plastic and a voip account and you could have an asterisk box call a phone number 20,000 times for under $50.00 as an Added bonus you could have their caller ID show up as their local dildo shop.

    Also if you learn tons about Voip there are ways to attack Voip systems that run phone systems directly and take down the system.

    Enough to start googleing?

    i remember someone (professinal20?) said here that he is capable of sending a few thousand SMS to a phone number in a very short timeframe, this little operation basically paralize the phone at least for a while

    Yes I was actually wanting to do this to a cell phone- and it just so happens to be text capable.
    Am wondering if something like the old email b(0) mb stuff from years ago would work here?
    Would be cool to see them open one text and 500 duplicates show up in in box.:D

    There are some ways to jam phone lines so they stay open (can't hangup call). What places like the FBI use to keep a line alive to trace a call. Some googling may yield what your looking for ;)

    It's also a piece of cake to make a script toss it on a few free web hosts and spam the number to death. To do it free you will need to know their carrier or you could just make a brute forcer.

    Creativity are your only real limits.

    I used to use my aim bots to send a whole mess of text messages from a few hundred screen names.

    Also, once in a while my friends and I will gang up on somebody and open a text to CC them a few dozen times on. The phone would always die, that was so satisfying.

    Yes this could be done with a pretty simple script file running on asterisk or freeswitch. You would need a VoIP origination provider (or a few)...a list of spoofed numbers which could be any numbers.
    Trouble is that this would several felonies committed. Spoofing a caller Id is illegal, as well as interfering with communication systems...could get in big trouble.

    A couple offshore linux vps servers, a few prepaid sip Trunk accounts, and some balls to pull the trigger could easily gum up a small/med sized company's phone lines for a day or two before anyone could shut it down.

    Yes something like this happened to me years ago. It was similar but not the same. This was in the early 90s when people used pagers- what happened was someone figured out how to send a message to 1000 pagers at once. So I get a page- says some number -911-911-911 so well I make sure to call quick. Turns out it was a fire station a couple of towns over. Guy that answered said he had gotten 2-300 calls that day.

    This is true. A number of years ago, A guy I worked with had sat online one night and got all these cool little tricks using key combinations (Like special key codes on specific brands that would bring up their serial numbers etc, nothing special).

    Anyway he had this SMS message, that when opened on a phone, it would resend the same message to the same phone. Often creating one huge loop. I have no idea how he did it, But I know he had to buy a co-worker a new phone/sim because his old phone refused to turn on after being bombarded with so many SMS messages. It just died.

    When I took my first girlfriend to our first date 15 years ago (maybe less), her mother left 18 messages and called 27 times.
    That was except the 10 times they actually spoke.

    She totally paralyzed my date and did a very effective DateDOS.

    PS - True story.

    Actually I've heard from a friend of mine working as a security monitor at a big telecommunications company that they get attacks from hundreds of thousand of infected Android Phones on their voip networks(so android botnets) ...so ddos for voip very much exists but is no threat to any big company since they have special software/hardware taking care of this:)

    I've coded a phone denial of service attack attack that plugs into the Skype's API to automate the process of calling the number, waiting for a pick up, then hang up and dial again.

    I'd pose that the attack using an asterisk server / voip account would be faster and more efficient; however, I found playing with Skype's API to be easier.

    If your target has a cell phone and you are able to be near him/her during the attack you could achieve an interesting result by using a cell phone jammer. I'd recommend heading over to dealextreme and looking at the available options.

    Happy Hacking ;)

    You may be interfered by the mobile phone jammers. The only way to get rid of this is to get out of there.

    Jammers can be beneficial if used properly to block unwanted signal under certain circumstances. However, it may also work with bad effect as well especially when used maliciously by someone. For example, The Cell Phone Jammer prevents people from making emergency calls too. A mobile phone jamer will end up being a hurdle within the public airwaves and therefore the rights of those to make use of their cellphones is going to be infringed. The worst a part of using the jammers is it also disrupts the significant of pacemakers within the hearts of some patients.check site jammerfromchina.
