A telephony application running on the remote host is affected by a
certificate validation vulnerability.
According to its SIP banner, the version of Asterisk running on the
remote host is potentially affected by flaw related to certificate
validation when registering a SIP TLS device due to not properly
verifying a server hostname against an X.509 Common Name (CN) field
that has a NULL byte appended after the expected results. A
man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, via a crafted
certificate, to spoof arbitrary SSL servers and intercept network
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
