Debian DLA-2865-1 : resiprocate - LTS security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 156386


The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The remote Debian 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-2865 advisory.

- The SdpContents::Session::Medium::parse function in resip/stack/SdpContents.cxx in reSIProcate 1.10.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering many media connections. (CVE-2017-11521)

- The ConnectionBase::preparseNewBytes function in resip/stack/ConnectionBase.cxx in reSIProcate through 1.10.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow) or possibly execute arbitrary code when TLS communication is enabled. (CVE-2018-12584)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the resiprocate packages.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1
