Caller ID spoofing

Slashdot notes an article in USA Today which refers to easy ways to spoof caller ID using internet telephony. No doubt when the ISPs step up their network throttling of Skype et al to promote their own VOIP services, the Republican congressman referred to in the article whose office caller ID was spoofed in the act of making abusive calls to his constituents will be front and centre. Caller ID is also used to verify credit cards apparently.

No doubt the RIAA and the MPAA will be handing out "Skype for stalkers, BitTorrent for pirates" buttons.
