The remote VoIP server is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


According to the version in its SIP banner, the version of Asterisk running on the remote host is potentially affected by a vulnerability that could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to bypass access controls on out-bound calls.

Inter-Asterisk eXchange (IAX2) out-bound call restrictions can be bypassed if peer credentials, defined in a dynamic Asterisk Realtime Architecture (ARA) backend, are used by an attacker.
