CVE Name

Description An attacker can cause Asterisk to crash in one of two ways:

1. A dialplan uses the Milliwatt application with 'o'
option

2. The internal_timing opion in asterisk.conf is off

3. The attacker sends a large audio packet. The number of
samples in the audio packet determines the number of
internal data samples that are copied into the buffer. This
overruns the buffer, potentially causing a crash.

OR

1. A diaplan uses the Milliwatt application with the 'o'
option

2. The attacker negotiates a media format with a sampling
rate greater than 32kHz. The application will attempt to
generate an audio packet using the sample rate of the
negotiated format, where the sample rate will require a
number of data points greater then the size of the buffer.
Again, the the application copies a number of internal data
samples into the buffer that are greater then the size of
the buffer, potentially causing a crash.

Note that the latter attack vector is only possible in
Asterisk 10, as it supports codecs with a sample rate
greater then 32kHz.

Resolution Upgrade to one of the versions of Asterisk listed in the
"Corrected In" section, or apply a patch specified in the
"Patches" section.
