1.8.1.2, and 1.8.2.2 resolve an issue when forming an outgoing SIP request while
in pedantic mode, which can cause a stack buffer to be made to overflow if
supplied with carefully crafted caller ID information. The issue and resolution
are described in the AST-2011-001 security advisory.

For more information about the details of this vulnerability, please read the
security advisory AST-2011-001, which was released at the same time as this

Sicurezza: AST-2011-001 – Stack buffer overflow in SIP channel driver

logoasterisk

Ecco un estratto del documento sulla sicurezza AST-2011-001:

Description When forming an outgoing SIP request while in pedantic mode, a stack buffer can
be made to overflow if supplied with carefully crafted caller ID information. This
vulnerability also affects the URIENCODE dialplan function and in some versions
of asterisk, the AGI dialplan application as well. The ast_uri_encode function does
not properly respect the size of its output buffer and can write past the end of it
when encoding URIs.
Resolution The size of the output buffer passed to the ast_uri_encode function is now
properly respected.
In asterisk versions not containing the fix for this issue, limiting strings originating
from remote sources that will be URI encoded to a length of 40 characters will
protect against this vulnerability.
exten => s,1,Set(CALLERID(num)=${CALLERID(num):0:40})
exten => s,n,Set(CALLERID(name)=${CALLERID(name):0:40})
exten => s,n,Dial(SIP/channel)
The CALLERID(num) and CALLERID(name) channel values, and any strings passed
to the URIENCODE dialplan function should be limited in this manner.

Asterisk 1.8.2 Now Available

logoasterisk

Il giorno 14 gennaio, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio della versione Asterisk 1.8.2 (il post ufficiale titola "1.8.3" ma si tratta sicuramente di un errore "di battitura").

app_queue (set_queue_variables).

(Closes issue #18284, #18280. Reported, tested by klaus3000. Patched, tested
by russellb)
* Resolve issue where channel redirect function (CLI or AMI) hangs up the call
instead of redirecting the call.

causing multiple MWI subscriptions to be created when using realtime.
(Closes issue #18342. Reported, patched by nivek.)
* Fix XMPP PubSub-based distributed device state. Initialize pubsubflags to 0
so res_jabber doesn't think there is already an XMPP connection sending
device state. Also clean up CLI commands a bit.
(Closes issue #18272. Reported by klaus3000. Patched by Marquis42)
* Don't crash after Set(CDR(userfield)=...) in ast_bridge_call. Instead of
setting peer->cdr = NULL, set it to not post.
