   |      CVE Name      | CVE-2008-2543                                     |
   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | Description | The ooh323 channel driver provided in Asterisk Addons    |
   |             | used a TCP connection to pass commands internally. The   |
   |             | payload of these packets included addresses of memory    |
   |             | which were to be freed after the command was processed.  |
   |             | By sending arbitrary data to the listening TCP socket,   |
   |             | one could cause an almost certain crash since the        |
   |             | command handler would attempt to free invalid memory.    |
   |             | This problem was made worse by the fact that the         |
   |             | listening TCP socket was bound to whatever IP address    |
   |             | was specified by the "bindaddr" option in ooh323.conf    |
   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | Resolution | The TCP connection used by ooh323 has been replaced with  |
   |            | a pipe. The effect of this change is that data from       |
   |            | outside the ooh323 process may not be injected.           |
