    Paul Belanger reported a vulnerability in Asterisk identified as AST-2011-008 
    (CVE-2011-2529) through which an unauthenticated attacker may crash an Asterisk 
    server remotely. A package containing a null char causes the SIP header parser 
    to alter unrelated memory structures.
    
    Jared Mauch reported a vulnerability in Asterisk identified as AST-2011-009 
    through which an unauthenticated attacker may crash an Asterisk server remotely. 
    If a user sends a package with a Contact header with a missing left angle 
    bracket (<) the server will crash. A possible workaround is to disable chan_sip.
    
    The vulnerability identified as AST-2011-010 (CVE-2011-2535) reported about an 
    input validation error in the IAX2 channel driver. An unauthenticated attacker 
    may crash an Asterisk server remotely by sending a crafted option control frame.
