Description Martin Prpič 2014-11-21 13:06:40 UTC
The following issue was made public in the AST-2014-012 advisory [1][2]:

Many modules in Asterisk that service incoming IP traffic have ACL options
("permit" and "deny") that can be used to whitelist or blacklist address
ranges. A bug has been discovered where the address family of incoming
packets is only compared to the IP address family of the first entry in the
list of access control rules. If the source IP address for an incoming
packet is not of the same address family as the first ACL entry, that
packet bypasses all ACL rules. For ACLs whose rules are all of the same
address family, there is no issue.

Note that while the incoming packet may bypass ACL rules, the packet is
still subject to any authentication requirements that the specific
protocol employs.

This issue affects the following parts of Asterisk

* All VoIP channel drivers
* Asterisk Manager Interface (AMI)

Patches for this issue are linked to in the AST-2014-012 [1][2] advisory.
