Asterisk IAX2 Call Number Exhaustion DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote VoIP service is susceptible to a denial of service attack.

Description :

The version of Asterisk running on the remote host appears to be using
an older implementation of the IAX2 protocol that does not support
call token validation. Due to a design flaw in the protocol, a remote
attacker could send a large number of messages, exhausting all
available call numbers in the process. This would result in a denial
of service to legitimate users.

CVSS Temporal Score : 3.9
