The Asterisk development team has released version 1.4.11.

This version contains numerous bug fixes.  One of these is for a security issue
in chan_sip.  The issue is that SIP dialog history was being stored in memory
regardless if the option for this was turned on or off.  This could be abused to
cause a system using chan_sip to run out of memory.

The security issue is documented in AST-2007-020.  Affected systems include any
that are using chan_sip.  Also, only Asterisk 1.4 is affected.  Asterisk 1.2 is
not vulnerable to this issue.

The name prefix for our security advisories has been changed from ASA to AST.
The ASA scheme was already in use by another company before we started using it.
