CVE-2012-0885 was already assigned to AST-2012-001 based on a request from the upstream vendor. They
probably updated their advisory since your initial request:


Thanks for your prompt reply, Steve. It has been truly updated
already (checked by forcing Firefox to renew it's cached).

Thank you, Jan.

Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,

a denial of service flaw was found in the way asterisk processed certain
requests to negotiate secure video stream, when the res_srtp Asterisk module
has been loaded and video support has not been enabled. A remote attacker could
provide a specially-crafted media stream negotiation request, which once
processed by Asterisk would lead to asterisk daemon crash by processing crypto
line for such media stream.
