Asterisk Project Security Advisory - Asterisk can be crashed remotely by sending an ACK to it from an endpoint username that Asterisk does not recognize. Most SIP request types result in an "artificial" endpoint being looked up, but ACKs bypass this lookup. The resulting NULL pointer results in a crash when attempting to determine if ACLs should be applied. This issue was introduced in the Asterisk 13.10 release and only affects that release.

CVE Name

Description Asterisk can be crashed remotely by sending an ACK to it
from an endpoint username that Asterisk does not recognize.
Most SIP request types result in an "artificial" endpoint
being looked up, but ACKs bypass this lookup. The resulting
NULL pointer results in a crash when attempting to
determine if ACLs should be applied.

This issue was introduced in the Asterisk 13.10 release and
only affects that release.

This issue only affects users using the PJSIP stack with
Asterisk. Those users that use chan_sip are unaffected.

Resolution ACKs now result in an artificial endpoint being looked up
just like other SIP request types.
