CVE Name Pending

Description When an out of call message - delivered by either the SIP
or PJSIP channel driver or the XMPP stack - is handled in
Asterisk, a crash can occur if the channel servicing the
message is sent into the ReceiveFax dialplan application
while using the res_fax_spandsp module.

Note that this crash does not occur when using the
res_fax_digium module.

While this crash technically occurs due to a configuration
issue, as attempting to receive a fax from a channel driver
that only contains textual information will never succeed,
the likelihood of having it occur is sufficiently high as
to warrant this advisory.

Resolution The fax family of applications have been updated to handle
the Message channel driver correctly. Users using the fax
family of applications along with the out of call text
messaging features are encouraged to upgrade their versions
of Asterisk to the versions specified in this security

Additionally, users of Asterisk are encouraged to use a
separate dialplan context to process text messages. This
avoids issues where the Message channel driver is passed to
dialplan applications that assume a media stream is
available. Note that the various channel drivers and stacks
provide such an option; an example being the SIP channel
driver's outofcall_message_context option.
