Synopsis :

The version of Asterisk installed on the remote host may be affected
by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to the version in its SIP banner, the version of Asterisk
running on the remote host is potentially affected by multiple denial
of service vulnerabilities :

- If a remote user sends a SIP packet with a NULL,
Asterisk reads data past the NULL even though the
buffer is actually truncated when copied, which
could lead to an application crash. (AST-2011-008)

- A remote user sending a SIP packet containing a Contact
header with a missing left angle bracket causes Asterisk
to access a NULL pointer, which could cause the
application to crash. (AST-2011-009)

- A memory address can be inadvertently transmitted over
the network via IAX2 via an option control frame, which
would cause the remote party to try to access it.
