Cisco phone passwords

Posted on 2012-08-31
Last Modified: 2012-09-03
Do Cisco VoIP (model 7911) phones have any sort of password protection on the consoles themselves, and if so for what purposes, what features of the device is the password used to protect? Do you access the management features of the phone via the console itself or via some sort of web interface? How do you check the passwords, is there a default, and what potential misuse or risk is there if a standard user got hold of the devices password, i.e. what could they do with it?
