Subject: Re: [asterisk-users] Executing shell commands via AMI

But what about if asterisk running with non-privilege user?

Still it is not a good idea.

Yes I forgot to say that I also run Asterisk as a regular user, which also
helps with security.

But I really don’t see much of a threat on this. AGI does almost the same.

This won’t help but I’ll chip in anyway. In AGI, you have “total” local
control. In AMI, it’s a crap shoot.
