CVE Name CVE-2015-3008

Description When Asterisk registers to a SIP TLS device and and verifies the
server, Asterisk will accept signed certificates that match a
common name other than the one Asterisk is expecting if the
signed certificate has a common name containing a null byte
after the portion of the common name that Asterisk expected. For
example, if Asterisk is trying to register to www.domain.com,
Asterisk will accept certificates of the form
www.domain.com\x00www.someotherdomain.com - for more information
on this exploit, see
https://fotisl.com/blog/2009/10/the-null-certificate-prefix-bug/

Resolution Asterisk has been patched to verify that the common name
length of the certificate matches the common name that
Asterisk actually reads. Asterisk will not accept
certificates with common names that contain null bytes.
