GLSA-200802-11 : Asterisk: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 31294
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200802-11 (Asterisk: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Asterisk:
Russel Bryant reported a stack-based buffer overflow in the IAX2 channel driver (chan_iax2) when bridging calls between chan_iax2 and any channel driver that uses RTP for media (CVE-2007-3762).
Chris Clark and Zane Lackey (iSEC Partners) reported a NULL pointer dereference in the IAX2 channel driver (chan_iax2) (CVE-2007-3763).
Will Drewry (Google Security) reported a vulnerability in the Skinny channel driver (chan_skinny), resulting in an overly large memcpy (CVE-2007-3764).
Will Drewry (Google Security) reported a vulnerability in the IAX2 channel driver (chan_iax2), that does not correctly handle unauthenticated transactions using a 3-way handshake (CVE-2007-4103).
By sending a long voice or video RTP frame, a remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code on the target machine. Sending specially crafted LAGRQ or LAGRP frames containing information elements of IAX frames, or a certain data length value in a crafted packet, or performing a flood of calls not completing a 3-way handshake, could result in a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Asterisk users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/asterisk-1.2.17-r1'
