    |      CVE Name       |                                                  |

    +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    | Description | The handling of the BYE with Also transfer method was    |
    |             | broken during the development of Asterisk 1.4. If a      |
    |             | transfer attempt is made using this method the system    |
    |             | will immediately crash upon handling the BYE message due |
    |             | to trying to copy data into a NULL pointer. It is        |
    |             | important to note that a dialog must have already been   |
    |             | established and up in order for this to happen.          |
    +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

    +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    | Resolution | A fix has been added so that the BYE with Also transfer   |
    |            | method now properly allocates and uses the transfer data  |
    |            | structure. It will no longer try to copy data into a NULL |
    |            | pointer and will operate properly.                        |
