Report finds voicemail for Three, EE susceptible to number cloning

The voicemail accounts of EE and Three customers in the United Kingdom are at risk of being hacked, according to an investigation. The Register used a VoIP system that cloned the target's phone number, and found it was able to get into the mailbox without being asked for a PIN, something that would usually be asked when calling from another number. When asked for comment, Three pointed to advice it provides to customers to mandate the PIN in the voicemail, while EE claimed it is investigating the issue and trying to block the security hole. Other carriers tested by the report were found to be more secure.
