I have my Polycom directly conneted to internet and is not under a nat via firewall

Unfortunately as your system doesnt seem to be registered to a gatekeeper it will be difficult to prevent such attacks. Interlink Vision provide a gatekeeper registration service for endpoints that are directly on the public Internet. If you are interested in a demo or require more information please feel free to ask.

Please refer to a couple of Polycom resources for information related to security of video conferencing:
and then from there link to the Polycom Security Center (links on the rights side of the page).
This may not be the reason for your issue, but then again it doesn't hurt to check...

® HDX® Security Update
Frequently Asked Questions
This document provides information regarding security exploitations in Polycom HDX software prior to
version 22.214.171.124, details to understand whether or not your systems are vulnerable, recommended
remediation actions, and availability of additional security information.
Which versions of HDX software are vulnerable?
All HDX versions prior to 126.96.36.199 are vulnerable.
Is this being exploited in the wild (i.e. still an active threat to customers)?
How do I know if my HDX system has been attacked?
The HDX system will hang (freeze) while displaying a splash screen and not complete the boot process
that opens the Polycom video application.
If my HDX system is attacked how do I get it fixed?
Customers experiencing this situation should contact Polycom Support at 1-800-POLYCOM. Support will
need remote access to the HDX’s IP address, and will be able to restore the device to operation.
What should I do to prevent my HDX system from being attacked?
Polycom recommends that all customers immediately upgrade to HDX version 188.8.131.52. Polycom has fixed
these issues in HDX version 184.108.40.206, which is no longer vulnerable to this exploit.
What security recommendations does Polycom offer?
Secure video conferencing is a priority for Polycom, and we have security features across our full range
of solutions. All of our solutions - from endpoints to infrastructure – come with features that meet the most
stringent industry standards. When your use of video conferencing systems is consistent with best
practices, these features can ensure your audio, video and data traffic will remain fully secure as they
pass across the network.
For on-going information about security on Polycom products please visit our security information web
site at: www.polycom.com/security which provides best security practice recommendations and also links
to the Security Center where security advisories are posted.
Additionally in keeping with security best practices customers should always do the following:
Change the default password
Use a password on their video conferencing systems
Disable protocols and interfaces that are not used such as telnet
If the system is used only when people are in the room Polycom recommends disabling the ‘auto
answer’ functionality – allowing users to manually answer incoming calls and to consider disabling
remote control of the local camera
