CVE Name CVE-2018-7287

Description When reading a websocket, the length was not being checked.
If a payload of length 0 was read, it would result in a
busy loop that waited for the underlying connection to
close.

Resolution A patch to asterisk is available that checks for payloads of
size 0 before attempting to read them. By default, Asterisk
does not enable the HTTP server, which means it is not
vulnerable to this problem. If the HTTP server is enabled,
you can disable it if you do not need it. Otherwise, the
patch provided with this security vulnerability can be
applied. Either of these approaches will resolve the
problem.
