     CVE Name       CVE-2014-4045

Description  A remotely exploitable crash vulnerability exists in the     
             PJSIP channel driver's pub/sub framework. If an attempt is   
             made to unsubscribe when not currently subscribed and the    
             endpoint's "sub_min_expiry" is set to zero, Asterisk tries   
             to create an expiration timer with zero seconds, which is    
             not allowed, so an assertion raised.

Resolution  Upgrade to a version with the patch integrated, apply the     
            patch, or make sure the "sub_min_expiry" endpoint             
            configuration option is greater than zero.
