          CVE Name        

    Description  In the Skinny channel driver, KEYPAD_BUTTON_MESSAGE events   
                 are queued for processing in a buffer allocated on the       
                 heap, where each DTMF value that is received is placed on    
                 the end of the buffer. Since the length of the buffer is     
                 never checked, an attacker could send sufficient             
                 KEYPAD_BUTTON_MESSAGE events such that the buffer is         
                 overrun.                                                     

    Resolution  The length of the buffer is now checked before appending a    
                value to the end of the buffer.
