CVE Name Pending

Description Setting the sip.conf timert1 value to a value higher than
1245 can cause an integer overflow and result in large
retransmit timeout times. These large timeout values hold
system file descriptors hostage and can cause the system to
run out of file descriptors.

Resolution Setting the sip.conf timert1 value to 1245 or lower will not
exhibit the vulnerability. The default timert1 value is 500.
Asterisk has been patched to detect the integer overflow and
calculate the previous retransmission timer value.
