Tech Tip of the Month

Secure Your ShoreTel System

A good step to take for security of your ShoreTel system is to ensure all users are using non-standard voicemail passwords (such as 1234, 123456, 654321, or 4321, for example). External parties that access voicemail with those passwords (along with spoofing their inbound caller id) can potentially utilize the callback functionality in voicemail to generate outbound calls to long distance or international numbers.

Step #1: In Director, browse to Administration -> Users… -> Individual Users and select the user in question

Step #2: Scroll to the bottom and there is an entry for “Voice Mail Password” where you can either specify the new password or check the box for “Must Change On Next Login”, and then save it back at the top of the page

 

Connect: 

Step #1: In Director, browse to Administration -> Users -> Users and select the user in question

Step #2: On the bottom righthand pane, there is an entry for “Voice Mail Password” where you can either specify the new password or check the box for “Must Change On Next Login”, and then save it once completed.

For both of these steps they need to be done a per-user basis rather than in bulk.
