>    | Description | The Asterisk Manager Interface has a remote crash        |
>    |             | vulnerability. If a manager user is configured in        |
>    |             | manager.conf without a password, and then a connection   |
>    |             | is made that attempts to use that username and MD5       |
>    |             | authentication, Asterisk will dereference a NULL pointer |
>    |             | and crash.                                               |

>    | Resolution | The manager interface is not enabled by default. If it is |
