+------------------------------------------------------------------------+

+------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| 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. |
