Yes !!

Speaking from experience, make sure that you enable the IOS firewall to prevent inbound SIP connections to the CCME, or at least limit them to authorised sources.

As soon as you enable Voicemail (for example), this enables SIP on CCME. If unprotected by a firewall config, the CCME system can then be hacked (following a port scan on 5060) and assuming they guess your Dial-Peer digits (usually 9 in the UK) then they can commit toll fraud and make calls via your system.

We are presently in discussuin with our CAM regards this.

Hope this helps.
