Debian Security Advisory DSA-2605-2 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst January 19, 2013 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : asterisk Vulnerability : several issues Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-5976 CVE-2012-5977 Debian Bug : 697230 698112 698118

The security update released in DSA 2605 for Asterisk, caused a regression that could lead to crashes. Updated packages have now been made available to correct that behaviour. For reference, the original advisory text follows.

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Asterisk, a PBX and telephony toolkit, that allow remote attackers to perform denial of service attacks.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.6.2.9-2+squeeze10.

For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your asterisk packages.
