CVE Name CVE-2014-3566

Description The POODLE vulnerability - described under CVE-2014-3566 - is
described at
This advisory describes the Asterisk's project susceptibility
to this vulnerability.

The POODLE vulnerability consists of two issues:

1) A vulnerability in the SSL protocol version 3.0. This
vulnerability has no known solution.

2) The ability to force a fallback to SSLv3 when a TLS
connection is negotiated.

Asterisk is susceptible to both portions of the vulnerability
in different places.

1) The res_jabber and res_xmpp module both use SSLv3
exclusively, and are hence susceptible to POODLE.

2) The core TLS handling, used by the chan_sip channel driver,
Asterisk Manager Interface (AMI), and the Asterisk HTTP
server, defaults to allowing SSLv3/SSLv2 fallback. This allows
a MITM to potentially force a connection to fallback to SSLv3,
exposing it to the POODLE vulnerability.

Resolution Asterisk has been patched such that it no longer uses SSLv3
for the res_jabber/res_xmpp modules. Additionally, when the
encryption method is not specified, the default handling in
the TLS core no longer allows for a fallback to SSLv3 or

1) Users of Asterisk's res_jabber or res_xmpp modules should
upgrade to the versions of Asterisk specified in this

2) Users of Asterisk's chan_sip channel driver, AMI, and
HTTP server may set the "tlsclientmethod" or
"sslclientmethod" to "tlsv1" to force TLSv1 as the only
allowed encryption method. Alternatively, they may also
upgrade to the versions of Asterisk specified in this
advisory. Users of Asterisk are encouraged to NOT specify
"sslv2" or "sslv3". Doing so will now emit a WARNING.
