Authored by Mark Michelson | Site asterisk.org

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - 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.

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.
