Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The Asterisk Development Team has announced a security release for
Asterisk 10. This security release is released as version 10.5.1.

The release is available for immediate download at

The release of Asterisk 10.5.1 resolves the following issue :

- A remotely exploitable crash vulnerability was found in
the Skinny (SCCP) Channel driver. When an SCCP client
sends an Off Hook message, followed by a Key Pad Button
Message, a structure that was previously set to NULL is
dereferenced. This allows remote authenticated
connections the ability to cause a crash in the server,
denying services to legitimate users.

This issue and its resolution is described in the security advisory.

For more information about the details of this vulnerability, please
read security advisory AST-2012-009, which was released at the same
time as this announcement.
