Description Vincent Danen 2009-09-04 00:22:53 UTC
The Asterisk development team has released new versions of Asterisk for 1.2.x, 1.4.x, 1.6.0.x and 1.6.1.x that correct an IAX2 denial of service vulnerability.  The security advisory (AST-2009-006) [1] indicates that 1.6.0.15 and 1.6.1.6 correct the vulnerability.

This vulnerability affects all versions of Asterisk prior to 1.2.35, 1.4.26.2, 1.6.0.15, adn 1.6.1.6.  Package updates for Fedora are required; apparently this changes the IAX2 protocol as well so I'm not sure if a backport is feasible.
