CVE-2009-2346 asterisk: IAX2 DoS vulnerability (AST-2009-006)
Last modified: 2009-10-27 14:21:31 EDT
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)  indicates that 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 correct the vulnerability.
This vulnerability affects all versions of Asterisk prior to 1.2.35, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, adn 184.108.40.206. Package updates for Fedora are required; apparently this changes the IAX2 protocol as well so I'm not sure if a backport is feasible.
MITRE's CVE-2009-2346 record:
The IAX2 protocol implementation in Asterisk Open Source 1.2.x before
1.2.35, 1.4.x before 220.127.116.11, 1.6.0.x before 18.104.22.168, and 1.6.1.x
before 22.214.171.124; Business Edition B.x.x before B.2.5.10, C.2.x before
C.2.4.3, and C.3.x before C.3.1.1; and s800i 1.3.x before 126.96.36.199
