re: Cisco IOS Hole Points to VOIP Threat
I work in a multi-vendor environment, If you are going to write an article about security or VOIP security then you should not single out any vendor. Security is an area that needs constant attention, its a moving target, your article only highlights Cisco, but I can assure you I have had to upgrade Code from other vendors to prohibit attacks even though they vulnerabilities don't get much play on the news or on the boards.
If you are going to write about security then do some real research, I recently spoke to our vendors about security issues and it may surprise you to learn that they do communicate and share information in order to resolve issues.

Sometimes it gets old bashing Cisco and definitely it shouldn't be on about security issues, I happen to think they do a resonably good job of keeping the public updated on thes issues.
To be fair when are we going to see the articles on other vendors security issues :-(

For whatever reason C does not notify my eng group of such. This has happened with previous call server issues and the 15454s.

re: Cisco IOS Hole Points to VOIP Threat
When you're number 1 in your industry, any problem within that industry will belong primarily to you. VoIP has been, is and will continue to be a security problem. The Internet is not, by design, a secure/private environment. The 'net is a highly redundant method for data interconnectivity. The security/privacy that most folks would like for their phone conversations is an incomplete afterthought.

This is in addition to the fact that the TCP/IP protocol stack was never intended to be a realtime communication environment. This too is an ongoing afterthought, because voice conversations are realtime applications. This problem will also focus (fairly) on Cisco, because they are the major player in the VoIP market.
