Asterisk SMS message denial of service
|asterisk-sms-message-dos (89825)||Medium Risk|
Asterisk is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper bounds checking by the unpacksms16() function. By sending a 16-bit SMS message, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and cause the system to crash.
