         CVE Name       CVE-2019-15297                                        

      Description     When Asterisk sends a re-invite initiating T.38         
                      faxing, and the endpoint responds with a declined       
                      media stream a crash will then occur in Asterisk.       
    Modules Affected  res_pjsip_t38.c                                         

    Resolution  If T.38 faxing is not required then setting the “t38_udptl”   
                configuration option on the endpoint to “no” disables this    
                functionality. This option defaults to “no” so you have to    
                have explicitly set it “yes” to potentially be affected by    
                this issue.                                                   
                Otherwise, if T.38 faxing is required then Asterisk should    
                be upgraded to a fixed version.
