    The security update released in DSA 2605 for Asterisk, caused a
    regression that could lead to crashes. Updated packages have now been
    made available to correct that behaviour. For reference, the original
    advisory text follows.
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Asterisk, a PBX and telephony
    toolkit, that allow remote attackers to perform denial of service
    attacks.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.6.2.9-2+squeeze10.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your asterisk packages.
