   | Description | There is a possibility to remotely crash an Asterisk     |
   |             | server if the server is configured to use realtime IAX2  |
   |             | users. The issue occurs if either an unknown user        |
   |             | attempts to authenticate or if a user that uses hostname |
   |             | matching attempts to authenticate.                       |
   |             |                                                          |
   |             | The problem was due to a broken function call to         |
   |             | Asterisk's realtime configuration API.                   |
   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   |   Resolution    | The function calls in question have been fixed.      |
