CVE Name CVE-2014-2289

Description A remotely exploitable crash vulnerability exists in the
PJSIP channel driver's handling of SUBSCRIBE requests. If a
SUBSCRIBE request is received for the presence Event, and
that request has no Accept headers, Asterisk will attempt
to access an invalid pointer to the header location.

Note that this issue was fixed during a re-architecture of
the res_pjsip_pubsub module in Asterisk 12.1.0. As such,
this issue has already been resolved in a released version
of Asterisk. This notification is being released for users
of Asterisk 12.0.0.

Resolution Upgrade to Asterisk 12.1.0, or apply the patch noted below
to Asterisk 12.0.0.
