Debian DSA-1417-1 : asterisk - missing input sanitising

medium Nessus Plugin ID 29191
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.


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Tilghman Lesher discovered that the logging engine of Asterisk, a free software PBX and telephony toolkit, performs insufficient sanitising of call-related data, which may lead to SQL injection.


Upgrade the asterisk packages.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.0.7.dfsg.1-2sarge6.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.2.13~dfsg-2etch2. Updated packages for ia64 will be provided later.
