         CVE Name       

    Description  By carefully crafting invalid values in the Cseq and the     
                 Via header port, pjproject’s packet parsing code can create  
                 strings larger than the buffer allocated to hold them. This  
                 will usually cause Asterisk to crash immediately. The        
                 packets do not have to be authenticated.                     

    Resolution  Stricter validation is now done on strings that represent     
                numeric values before they are converted to intrinsic types.  
                Invalid values now cause packet processing to stop and error  
                messages to be emitted.
