Inter-Asterisk eXchange Protocol Detection

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote system is running a server that speaks the Inter-Asterisk eXchange Protocol.

Description

The Inter-Asterisk eXchange protocol (IAX2) is used by the Asterisk PBX Server and other IP telephony clients/servers to enable voice communication between them.

Solution

If possible, filter incoming connections to the port so that it is used by trusted sources only.
