CVE Name CVE-2014-2286

Description Sending a HTTP request that is handled by Asterisk with a
large number of Cookie headers could overflow the stack.
You could even exhaust memory if you sent an unlimited
number of headers in the request.

Resolution The patched versions now handle headers in a fashion that
prevents a stack overflow. Users should upgrade to a
corrected version, apply the released patches, or disable
HTTP support.
