Remote crash when handling out of call message in certain dialplan configurations

Il giorno 20 settembre 2014, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio di Asterisk 13.0.0-beta2.

Dal post originale:

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2014-010

Product Asterisk
Summary Remote crash when handling out of call message in
certain dialplan configurations
Nature of Advisory Remotely triggered crash of Asterisk
Susceptibility Remote authenticated sessions
Severity Minor
Exploits Known No
Reported On 05 September 2014
Reported By Philippe Lindheimer
Posted On 18 September 2014
Last Updated On September 18, 2014
Advisory Contact Matt Jordan
CVE Name Pending

Description When an out of call message - delivered by either the SIP
or PJSIP channel driver or the XMPP stack - is handled in
Asterisk, a crash can occur if the channel servicing the
message is sent into the ReceiveFax dialplan application
while using the res_fax_spandsp module.

Note that this crash does not occur when using the
res_fax_digium module.

While this crash technically occurs due to a configuration
issue, as attempting to receive a fax from a channel driver
that only contains textual information will never succeed,
the likelihood of having it occur is sufficiently high as
to warrant this advisory.

Resolution The fax family of applications have been updated to handle
the Message channel driver correctly. Users using the fax
family of applications along with the out of call text
messaging features are encouraged to upgrade their versions
of Asterisk to the versions specified in this security
advisory.

Additionally, users of Asterisk are encouraged to use a
separate dialplan context to process text messages. This
avoids issues where the Message channel driver is passed to
dialplan applications that assume a media stream is
available. Note that the various channel drivers and stacks
provide such an option; an example being the SIP channel
driver's outofcall_message_context option.

AST-2014-009: Remote crash based on malformed SIP subscription requests

Il giorno 20 settembre 2014, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio di Asterisk 13.0.0-beta2.

Dal post originale:

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2014-009

Summary Remote crash based on malformed SIP subscription
requests
Nature of Advisory Remotely triggered crash of Asterisk
Susceptibility Remote authenticated sessions

Reported By Mark Michelson

Advisory Contact Mark Michelson
CVE Name Pending

Description It is possible to trigger a crash in Asterisk by sending a
SIP SUBSCRIBE request with unexpected mixes of headers for
a given event package. The crash occurs because Asterisk
allocates data of one type at one layer and then interprets
the data as a separate type at a different layer. The crash
requires that the SUBSCRIBE be sent from a configured
endpoint, and the SUBSCRIBE must pass any authentication
that has been configured.

Note that this crash is Asterisk's PJSIP-based
res_pjsip_pubsub module and not in the old chan_sip module.

Resolution Type-safety has been built into the pubsub API where it
previously was absent. A test has been added to the
testsuite that previously would have triggered the crash.

Rilasciato Asterisk 13.0.0-beta2

Il giorno 20 settembre 2014, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio di Asterisk 13.0.0-beta2.

Dal post originale:
All interested users of Asterisk are encouraged to participate in the
Asterisk 13 testing process. Please report any issues found to the issue
tracker, https://issues.asterisk.org/jira. All Asterisk users are invited to
participate in the #asterisk-bugs channel to help communicate issues found to
the Asterisk developers. It is also very useful to see successful test reports.
Please post those to the asterisk-dev mailing list (http://lists.digium.com).

Asterisk 13 is the next major release series of Asterisk. It will be a Long Term
Support (LTS) release, similar to Asterisk 11. For more information about
support time lines for Asterisk releases, see the Asterisk versions page:
https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+Versions

For important information regarding upgrading to Asterisk 13, please see the
Asterisk wiki:

https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Upgrading+to+Asterisk+13

A short list of new features includes:

* Asterisk security events are now provided via AMI, allowing end users to
monitor their Asterisk system in real time for security related issues.

* Both AMI and ARI now allow external systems to control the state of a mailbox.
Using AMI actions or ARI resources, external systems can programmatically
trigger Message Waiting Indicators (MWI) on subscribed phones. This is of
particular use to those who want to build their own VoiceMail application
using ARI.

* ARI now supports the reception/transmission of out of call text messages using
any supported channel driver/protocol stack through ARI. Users receive out of
call text messages as JSON events over the ARI websocket connection, and can
send out of call text messages using HTTP requests.

* The PJSIP stack now supports RFC 4662 Resource Lists, allowing Asterisk to act
as a Resource List Server. This includes defining lists of presence state,
mailbox state, or lists of presence state/mailbox state; managing
subscriptions to lists; and batched delivery of NOTIFY requests to
subscribers.

* The PJSIP stack can now be used as a means of distributing device state or
mailbox state via PUBLISH requests to other Asterisk instances. This is
analogous to Asterisk's clustering support using XMPP or Corosync; unlike
existing clustering mechanisms, using the PJSIP stack to perform the
distribution of state does not rely on another daemon or server to perform the
work.

And much more!

Nuovo Raspberry Pi Model B+

Il nuovo Raspberry Pi Model B+ ha, rispetto al precedente modello, il connettore GPIO a 40 pin (con pinout da 26 pin identico al Modello B) e ben 4 porte USB.

Rinnovata anche la parte dei circuiti con sensibile risparmio di consumi energetici e (0.5W-1W) e un migliore output audio.

Questo nuovo modello si affianca ai precedenti che continueranno, al momento, ad essere prodotti.

Asterisk Project Security Advisory – AST-2014-008

Il giorno 12 giugno 2014, il Team di Sviluppo di Asterisk ha annunciato il rilascio delle securety release per Asterisk: 1.8.15-cert6, 1.8.28.1, 11.6-cert3, 11.10.1, 12.3.1

CVE Name CVE-2014-4048

Description 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.

Resolution The socket-servicing thread is now no longer capable of
dispatching synchronous tasks to other threads since that
may result in deadlocks.

CVE Name CVE-2014-4047

Description 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.

Resolution The patched versions now have a session_inactivity timeout
option in http.conf that defaults to 30000 ms. Users should
upgrade to a corrected version, apply the released patches,
or disable HTTP support.

CVE Name CVE-2014-4046

Description 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.

Resolution Upgrade to a version with the patch integrated, apply the
patch, or do not allow users who should not have permission
to run shell commands to use AMI.
