Log Message:
Update to Asterisk  This fixes AST-2012-004, AST-2012-005,
and AST-2012-006.

The Asterisk Development Team has announced security releases for
Asterisk 1.6.2 , 1.8, and 10. The available security releases are
released as versions,, and 10.3.1.

The release of Asterisk,, and 10.3.1 resolve the
following two issues:

 * A permission escalation vulnerability in Asterisk Manager
   Interface.  This would potentially allow remote authenticated
   users the ability to execute commands on the system shell with
   the privileges of the user running the Asterisk application.

 * A heap overflow vulnerability in the Skinny Channel driver.
   The keypad button message event failed to check the length of
   a fixed length buffer before appending a received digit to the
   end of that buffer.  A remote authenticated user could send
   sufficient keypad button message events that th e buffer would
   be overrun.

In addition, the release of Asterisk and 10.3.1 resolve
the following issue:

 * A remote crash vulnerability in the SIP channel driver when
   processing UPDATE requests.  If a SIP UPDATE request was received
   indicating a connected line update after a channel was terminated
   but before the final destruction of the associated SIP dialog,
   Asterisk would attempt a connected line update on a non-existing
   channel, causing a crash.

These issues and their resolution are described in the security
