          CVE Name        CVE-2013-2686                                       

   Description AST-2012-014 [1], fixed in January of this year, contained a   
               fix for Asterisk's HTTP server since it was susceptible to a   
               remotely-triggered crash.                                      
               The fix put in place fixed the possibility for the crash to be 
               triggered, but a possible denial of service still exists if an 
               attacker sends one or more HTTP POST requests with very large  
               Content-Length values.                                         

    Resolution  Content-Length is now capped at a maximum value of 1024       
                bytes. Any attempt to send an HTTP POST with content-length   
                greater than this cap will not result in any memory           
                allocated. The POST will be responded to with an HTTP 413     
                "Request Entity Too Large" response.
