There are various ways of hacking VoIP networks, but people familiar with the practice in Gaza say it involves using dedicated servers to scoop up as many telephone IP addresses as possible, especially from big corporations and businesses.At that point the line, and any credit attached to it, is under the hackers' control.For those in Gaza, a strip of land 40 km long and 10 km wide where 1.8 million people live, it's a chance to use their technical skills to earn cash at a time when jobs are few and unemployment hovers at 50 percent.In fact, Gaza's isolation may be the hackers' best protection.Since few people can easily move in and out of Gaza, the chances of that happening are slim.
