CVE Name CVE-2014-4046

Description Manager users can execute arbitrary shell commands with the
MixMonitor manager action. Asterisk does not require system
class authorization for a manager user to use the
MixMonitor action, so any manager user who is permitted to
use manager commands can potentially execute shell commands
as the user executing the Asterisk process.

Resolution Upgrade to a version with the patch integrated, apply the
patch, or do not allow users who should not have permission
to run shell commands to use AMI.
