         CVE Name       

    Description  By crafting an SDP message body with an invalid fmtp         
                 attribute Asterisk crashes when using the pjsip channel      
                 driver because pjproject's fmtp retrieval function fails to  
                 check if fmtp value is empty (set empty if previously        
                 parsed as invalid).                                          
                 The severity of this vulnerability is lessened since an      
                 endpoint must be authenticated prior to reaching the crash   
                 point, or it's configured with no authentication.            

    Resolution  A stricter check is now done when pjproject retrieves the     
                fmtp attribute. Empty values are now properly handled.
