Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2014-019

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2014-019
Posted Dec 10, 2014
Authored by Joshua Colp | Site asterisk.org

Asterisk Project Security Advisory - When handling a WebSocket frame the res_http_websocket module dynamically changes the size of the memory used to allow the provided payload to fit. If a payload length of zero was received the code would incorrectly attempt to resize to zero. This operation would succeed and end up freeing the memory but be treated as a failure. When the session was subsequently torn down this memory would get freed yet again causing a crash. Users of the WebSocket functionality also did not take into account that provided text frames are not guaranteed to be NULL terminated. This has been fixed in chan_sip and chan_pjsip in the applicable versions.

CVE Name

Description When handling a WebSocket frame the res_http_websocket
module dynamically changes the size of the memory used to
allow the provided payload to fit. If a payload length of
zero was received the code would incorrectly attempt to
resize to zero. This operation would succeed and end up
freeing the memory but be treated as a failure. When the
session was subsequently torn down this memory would get
freed yet again causing a crash.

Users of the WebSocket functionality also did not take into
account that provided text frames are not guaranteed to be
NULL terminated. This has been fixed in chan_sip and
chan_pjsip in the applicable versions.

Resolution Ensure the built-in HTTP server is disabled, upgrade to a
version listed below, or apply the applicable patch.

The change ensures that res_http_websocket does not treat
the freeing of memory when a payload length of zero is
received as fatal.
