The NISCC and the OUSPG developed a test suite for the H.323 protocol. This test suite has uncovered vulnerabilities in several H.323 implementations with impacts ranging from denial-of-service to arbitrary code execution.

In the FreeBSD Ports Collection, `pwlib' is directly affected. Other applications such as `asterisk' and `openh323' incorporate `pwlib' statically and so are also independently affected.
