PAW and PAWS, written by Volker Tanger ([email protected]), are wardialing software written in Python. PAW or Plain Analog Wardialer is for PSTN wardialing, whereas PAWS or Python Advanced Wardialing System is designed for ISDN scanning.
PAW scans for "modern" analog modems running at 9.6 kbit/s or higher, and you can use it—as well as PAWS on the ISDN side—to find unauthorized modems that can then be disabled or configured in a different way (for example, to perform a callback to the original caller), obtaining, as a result, a much harder access to the internal network.
PAW and PAWS require the Python module pySerial, which is downloadable from sourceforge.
