There was a security update for Asterisk released yesterday which
addresses a denial-of-service class vulnerability in which malformed SIP
packets could cause asterisk to crash.  Our server also randomly died
once on Monday morning with no apparent cause.  It's possible someone
was exploiting this.  I upgraded ours last night.
