    Package        : kamailio
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16657
    Debian Bug     : 908324
    
    Henning Westerholt discovered a flaw related to the Via header
    processing in kamailio, a very fast, dynamic and configurable SIP
    server. An unauthenticated attacker can take advantage of this flaw to
    mount a denial of service attack via a specially crafted SIP message
    with an invalid Via header.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.4.4-2+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kamailio packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of kamailio please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
