To exploit this vulnerability, a remote user must be able to establish an AMQP connection to the Qpid Dispatch Router and send a specifically crafted AMQP frame which will cause it to segfault and shut down. Resolution: Users of Qpid Dispatch Router versions 0.7.0 and 0.8.0 must upgrade to version 0.8.1 or 1.0.0 and later. Mitigation: Any user who is able to connect to the Router may exploit the vulnerability. If anonymous authentication is enabled then any remote user with network access the Router is a possible attacker. The number of possible attackers is reduced if the Router is configured to require authentication. Then an attacker needs to have authentic credentials which are used to create a connection to the Router before proceeding to exploit this vulnerability.  - https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DISPATCH-924
