With anything that we are smart enough to build, there will always be people even smarter to compromise them! Like any computer system or software VoIP can bring some security issues but so can a traditional telephone system. (http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2008/12/hacked-phone-sy/) This story demonstrates a hack resulting in a loss of $50,000. There are steps you can take to secure any phone system, and different brands other than cisco will have their own security measures. You should make sure you discuss these concerns with your provider. My company sells all phone systems - legacy, hosted and VoIP so you can see that i'm impartial to all!
