Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-03-16 11:38:25 UTC
An out-of stack-based buffer write flaw was found in the way the Miliwatt application of the Asterisk, open source telephony toolkit, performed generation of constant audio tone at 1000Hz (the 'o' option) from certain, provided audio packets, when the 'internal_timing' Asterisk configuration file option was disabled. In this configuration, a remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted audio packet file, which once processed by the Miliwatt application would lead to that application crash, or, potentially arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application.
