Israel-based software company claims police call recording software fixed
Nice Systems of Israel said it patched remaining critical flaws in its call recording software used by law enforcement, but the consultancy that discovered the risky flaws hasn't verified the fixes.
The interaction between Nice Systems and Austria-based SEC Consult shows the slightly uneasy, arms-length relationship software vendors have with security companies that sometimes uncover alarming problems through unsolicited audits.
Since late last year, Nice Systems has intermittently communicated with SEC Consult, which analyzed Nice Recording eXpress, which is software used by call centers and police to record phone calls. SEC Consult occasionally picks applications and performs so-called "security crash tests" to discover vulnerabilities.
