     CVE Name       CVE-2012-3812

Description  If a single voicemail account is manipulated by two parties  
             simultaneously, a condition can occur where memory is freed  
             twice causing a crash.

Resolution  Management of the memory in question has been reworked so     
            that double frees and out of bounds array access do not       
            occur. Upgrade to the latest release.
