Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2012-014
Posted Jan 3, 2013
Authored by Mark Michelson | Site asterisk.org

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - Asterisk has several places where messages received over various network transports may be copied in a single stack allocation. In the case of TCP, since multiple packets in a stream may be concatenated together, this can lead to large allocations that overflow the stack. In the case of SIP, it is possible to do this before a session is established. Keep in mind that SIP over UDP is not affected by this vulnerability. With HTTP and XMPP, a session must first be established before the vulnerability may be exploited. The XMPP vulnerability exists both in the res_jabber.so module in Asterisk 1.8, 10, and 11 as well as the res_xmpp.so module in Asterisk 11.

CVE Name CVE-2012-5976

Description Asterisk has several places where messages received over
various network transports may be copied in a single stack
allocation. In the case of TCP, since multiple packets in a
stream may be concatenated together, this can lead to large
allocations that overflow the stack.

In the case of SIP, it is possible to do this before a
session is established. Keep in mind that SIP over UDP is
not affected by this vulnerability.

With HTTP and XMPP, a session must first be established
before the vulnerability may be exploited. The XMPP
vulnerability exists both in the res_jabber.so module in
Asterisk 1.8, 10, and 11 as well as the res_xmpp.so module
in Asterisk 11.

Resolution Stack allocations when using TCP have either been eliminated
in favor of heap allocations or have had an upper bound
placed on them to ensure that the stack will not overflow.

For SIP, the allocation now has an upper limit.

For HTTP, the allocation is now a heap allocation instead of
a stack allocation.

For XMPP, the allocation has been eliminated since it was
unnecessary.
