Debian: Security update for asterisk

Paul Belanger reported a vulnerability in Asterisk through which an unauthenticated attacker may crash an Asterisk server remotely. A package containing a null char causes the SIP header parser to alter unrelated memory structures. Jared Mauch reported a vulnerability in Asterisk through which an unauthenticated attacker may crash an Asterisk server remotely. If a user sends a package with a Contact header with a missing left angle bracket (<) the server will crash. Another vulnerability was reported about an input validation error in the IAX2 channel driver. An unauthenticated attacker may crash an Asterisk server remotely by sending a crafted option control frame. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
