Debian DSA-4292-1 : kamailio - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 117437


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Henning Westerholt discovered a flaw related to the Via header
processing in kamailio, a very fast, dynamic and configurable SIP
server. An unauthenticated attacker can take advantage of this flaw to
mount a denial of service attack via a specially crafted SIP message
with an invalid Via header.


Upgrade the kamailio packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.4.4-2+deb9u3.
