16.0.1.

The following security vulnerabilities were resolved in these versions:

There is a buffer overflow vulnerability in dns_srv and dns_naptr functions of
Asterisk that allows an attacker to crash Asterisk via a specially crafted DNS
SRV or NAPTR response. The attacker’s request causes Asterisk to segfault
and crash.

For a full list of changes in the current releases, please see the ChangeLogs:

ChangeLog-15.6.2
