         CVE Name       

    Description  The app_minivm module has an “externnotify” program          
                 configuration option that is executed by the MinivmNotify    
                 dialplan application. The application uses the caller-id     
                 name and number as part of a built string passed to the OS   
                 shell for interpretation and execution. Since the caller-id  
                 name and number can come from an untrusted source, a         
                 crafted caller-id name or number allows an arbitrary shell   
                 command injection.                                           

    Resolution  Patched Asterisk’s app_minivm module to use a different       
                system call that passes argument strings in an array instead  
                of having the OS shell determine the application parameter
