The release of Asterisk 1.8.11-cert2, 22.214.171.124, and 10.4.1 resolve the
following two issues :
- A remotely exploitable crash vulnerability exists in the
IAX2 channel driver if an established call is placed on
hold without a suggested music class. Asterisk will
attempt to use an invalid pointer to the music on hold
class name, potentially causing a crash.
- A remotely exploitable crash vulnerability was found in
the Skinny (SCCP) Channel driver. When an SCCP client
closes its connection to the server, a pointer in a
structure is set to NULL. If the client was not in the
on-hook state at the time the connection was closed,
this pointer is later dereferenced. This allows remote
authenticated connections the ability to cause a crash
in the server, denying services to legitimate users.
These issues and their resolution are described in the security
