Il giorno 12 giugno 2014, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio delle securety release per Asterisk: 1.8.15-cert6, 126.96.36.199, 11.6-cert3, 11.10.1, 12.3.1
Dal post originale:
The release of these versions resolves the following issue:
* AST-2014-007: Denial of Service via Exhaustion of Allowed Concurrent HTTP
Establishing a TCP or TLS connection to the configured HTTP or HTTPS port
respectively in http.conf and then not sending or completing a HTTP request
will tie up a HTTP session. By doing this repeatedly until the maximum number
of open HTTP sessions is reached, legitimate requests are blocked.
Additionally, the release of 11.6-cert3, 11.10.1, and 12.3.1 resolves the
* AST-2014-006: Permission Escalation via Asterisk Manager User Unauthorized
Manager users can execute arbitrary shell commands with the MixMonitor manager
action. Asterisk does not require system class authorization for a manager
user to use the MixMonitor action, so any manager user who is permitted to use
manager commands can potentially execute shell commands as the user executing
the Asterisk process.
Additionally, the release of 12.3.1 resolves the following issues:
* AST-2014-005: Remote Crash in PJSIP Channel Driver's Publish/Subscribe
A remotely exploitable crash vulnerability exists in the PJSIP channel
driver's pub/sub framework. If an attempt is made to unsubscribe when not
currently subscribed and the endpoint's “sub_min_expiry” is set to zero,
Asterisk tries to create an expiration timer with zero seconds, which is not
allowed, so an assertion raised.
* AST-2014-008: Denial of Service in PJSIP Channel Driver Subscriptions
When a SIP transaction timeout caused a subscription to be terminated, the
action taken by Asterisk was guaranteed to deadlock the thread on which SIP
requests are serviced. Note that this behavior could only happen on
established subscriptions, meaning that this could only be exploited if an
attacker bypassed authentication and successfully subscribed to a real
resource on the Asterisk server.
These issues and their resolutions are described in the security advisories.
For more information about the details of these vulnerabilities, please read
security advisories AST-2014-005, AST-2014-006, AST-2014-007, and AST-2014-008,
which were released at the same time as this announcement.
