Asterisk Multiple Channel Drivers Denial of Service (AST-2011-008/AST-2011-009/AST-2011-010)
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5969
SynopsisThe remote VoIP server is vulnerable to multiple denial of service attacks.
DescriptionThe version of Asterisk running on the remote host is potentially affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :
- If a remote user sends a SIP packet with a null, Asterisk reads data past the null even though the buffer is actually truncated when copied, which could lead to an application crash. (AST-2011-008)
- A remote user sending a SIP packet containing a Contact header with a missing left angle bracket causes Asterisk to access a null pointer which could cause the application to crash. (AST-2011-009)
- A memory address can be inadvertently transmitted over the network via IAX2 via an option control frame which would cause the remote party to try to access it. (AST-2011-010)
SolutionUpgrade to Asterisk 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52.1, 184.108.40.206, Asterisk Business C.3.7.3, or later.
