Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-06-03 12:09:14 UTC
A denial of service flaw was found in the way Asterisk processed malformed
Contact headers in SIP calls. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
cause asterisk server crash via specially-crafted Contact header sent in
a reply upon initialization of a SIP call.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2011-06-03 12:11:02 UTC
This issue affects the version of the asterisk package, as shipped with
Fedora release of 15 and as present within EPEL-6 repository. Please schedule
and update.

--

This issue did NOT affect the versions of the asterisk package (v1.6.2.17.2
based), as shipped with Fedora release of 13 and 14. Confirmation from
Jonathan Rose of Asterisk upstream follows:

"
This is correct.  Only 1.8 is affected and this is due to a major
overhaul in the sip channel driver to handle URI parsing in a more
generic fashion.  I've tested crash causing exploits against 1.6 and 1.4
and neither were prone to the malformed URI attack."

Comment 2 Jan Lieskovsky 2011-06-03 12:12:43 UTC
Created asterisk tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-15 [bug 710443]
Affects: epel-6 [bug 710444]
