   |      CVE Name       |                                                  |

   | Description | When configured with pedantic=yes the SIP channel driver |
   |             | performs extra request URI checking on an INVITE         |
   |             | received as a result of a SIP spiral. As part of this    |
   |             | extra checking the headers from the outgoing SIP INVITE  |
   |             | sent and the received SIP INVITE are compared. The code  |
   |             | incorrectly assumes that the string for each header      |
   |             | passed in will be non-NULL in all cases. This is         |
   |             | incorrect because if no headers are present the value    |
   |             | passed in will be NULL.                                  |
   |             |                                                          |
   |             | The values passed into the code are now checked to be    |
   |             | non-NULL before being compared.                          |

   | Resolution | Upgrade to revision 174082 of the 1.4 branch, 174085 of   |
   |            | the 1.6.0 branch, 174086 of the 1.6.1 branch, or one of   |
   |            | the releases noted below.                                 |
   |            |                                                           |
   |            | The pedantic option in the SIP channel driver can also be |
   |            | turned off to prevent this issue from occurring.          |
