New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201206-05 (Asterisk: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Asterisk:
An error in manager.c allows shell access through the MixMonitor application, GetVar, or Status (CVE-2012-2414).
An error in chan_skinny.c could cause a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2012-2415).
An error in chan_sip.c prevents Asterisk from checking if a channel exists before connected line updates (CVE-2012-2416).
An error in chan_iax2.c may cause an invalid pointer to be called (CVE-2012-2947).
chan_skinny.c contains a NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2012-2948).
A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
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-126.96.36.199'
