Asterisk as a caller ID

In a 1.4.24 system, out of several lines, one of ours gets 1 or more random
calls a day with “Asterisk” as the caller ID.

I have just seen this described in the last couple of weeks, but at the time
it wasn’t happening to us, and I the explanation didn’t stick with me.

Can anyone give me a pointer to this “feature”? Searching the message base
for “Asterisk” seems futile.

Thanks!

    In my experience, it happens when the caller is blocking their CID. I
    have programming in place that assigns the named restricted and the
    phone number of 0 if the caller-id is blank:

    exten => s,1,GotoIf($[“${CALLERID(num)}” = “” ]?2:3)
    exten => s,n,Set(CALLERID(all)=Restricted <0>)
