DESCRIPTION:
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Asterisk, which can be
exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

1) An error in IAX2 channel driver within the
"handle_request_update()" function (channels/chan_sip.c) when placing
an established call on hold can be exploited to cause a crash via
specially crafted packets.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that the
setting mohinterpret=passthrough is set and that the call is placed
on hold without a suggested music-on-hold class name.

2) An error in SCCP (Skinny) channel driver (channels/chan_skinny.c)
when handling termination of a client's connection can be exploited
to cause a crash by closing a connection to the server in certain
call states.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 1.8.11-cert prior to
1.8.11-cert2, 1.8.x prior to 1.8.12.1, and 10.x prior to 10.4.1.

SOLUTION:
Update to a fixed version.
