Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2014-014

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2014-014
Posted Nov 21, 2014
Authored by Joshua Colp, Ben Klang | Site asterisk.org

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - The ConfBridge application uses an internal bridging API to implement conference bridges. This internal API uses a state model for channels within the conference bridge and transitions between states as different things occur. Under load it is possible for some state transitions to be delayed causing the channel to transition from being hung up to waiting for media. As the channel has been hung up remotely no further media will arrive and the channel will stay within ConfBridge indefinitely.

CVE Name Pending

Description The ConfBridge application uses an internal bridging API to
implement conference bridges. This internal API uses a
state model for channels within the conference bridge and
transitions between states as different things occur. Under
load it is possible for some state transitions to be
delayed causing the channel to transition from being hung
up to waiting for media. As the channel has been hung up
remotely no further media will arrive and the channel will
stay within ConfBridge indefinitely.

Resolution The underlying bridging code that ConfBridge uses has been
fixed so state changes can not occur that will take a
channel out of the hung up state.
