   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | Description | Asterisk may respond differently to SIP requests from an |
   |             | invalid SIP user than it does to a user configured on    |
   |             | the system, even when the alwaysauthreject option is set |
   |             | in the configuration. This can leak information about    |
   |             | what SIP users are valid on the Asterisk system.         |
   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+

   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | Resolution | Respond to SIP requests from invalid and valid SIP users  |
   |            | in the same way. Asterisk 1.4 and 1.6.2 do not respond    |
   |            | identically by default due to backward-compatibility      |
   |            | reasons, and must have alwaysauthreject=yes set in        |
   |            | sip.conf. Asterisk 1.8 defaults to alwaysauthreject=yes.  |
   |            |                                                           |
   |            | IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE that users of Asterisk 1.4    |
   |            | and 1.6.2 set alwaysauthreject=yes in the general section |
   |            | of sip.conf.                                              |
