Caller ID Spoofing w/ Asterisk

Caller ID is often thought of as the ultimate way to see who is calling you. People use it to screen calls all the time. When you're able to spoof that number to whatever you would like you can easily defeat human nature of screening out calls from people they don't want to talk to. Besides being able to get in touch with those ignoring your calls it can be an attackers best friend. He or she can simply spoof your bank's number and social engineer you into giving out valuable information. The way people rely on caller ID it is unlikely the victim will realize what has happened until it is far too late.
