Fedora 17 : asterisk-10.5.2-1.fc17 (2012-10324)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The Asterisk Development Team has announced security releases for
Certified Asterisk 1.8.11 and Asterisk 1.8 and 10. The available
security releases are released as versions 1.8.11-cert4, 1.8.13.1,
10.5.2, and 10.5.2-digiumphones.

These releases are available for immediate download at
http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/releases

The release of Asterisk 1.8.11-cert4, 1.8.13.1, 10.5.2, and
10.5.2-digiumphones resolve the following two issues :

- If Asterisk sends a re-invite and an endpoint responds
to the re-invite with a provisional response but never
sends a final response, then the SIP dialog structure is
never freed and the RTP ports for the call are never
released. If an attacker has the ability to place a
call, they could create a denial of service by using all
available RTP ports.

- If a single voicemail account is manipulated by two
parties simultaneously, a condition can occur where
memory is freed twice causing a crash.

These issues and their resolution are described in the security
advisories.

For more information about the details of these vulnerabilities,
please read security advisories AST-2012-010 and AST-2012-011, which
were released at the same time as this announcement.
