Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

- Tue Oct 27 2009 Jeffrey C. Ollie <jeff at ocjtech.us> -
1.6.1.8-1 - Update to 1.6.1.8 to fix bug 531199: - -
http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/security/AST-2009-007.
html - - A missing ACL check for handling SIP INVITEs
allows a device to make - calls on networks intended to
be prohibited as defined by the 'deny' - and 'permit'
lines in sip.conf. The ACL check for handling SIP -
registrations was not affected. Other bugs were handled
by previous updates, including them here so that bodhi
will close them out.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
