The Asterisk Development Team has announced the release of Asterisk
This release is available for immediate download at

After the initial release of AST-2011-006, a regression was found and then
resolved. This release contains the correct change.

* Reverted part of r314607, as it can introduce a regression.
  Specifically, the security check for the "system" privilege was removed. If a
  user had the "call" privilege but not the "system" privilege, they would lose
  the ability to execute the system app and dialplan functions that run commands
  in a shell. This branch never used the "system" privilege for that purpose and
  did not need to be patched.
