As if Vonage wasn't having enough issues
with their fight to stay afloat, they are now being attacked by a
former competitor. SunRocket, which went belly up quite a while ago,

illegally obtained a list of SunRocket's former customers after an
unsuccessful bid to purchase the list straight from the SunRocket.
