Asterisk Project Security Advisory - The RTP support in Asterisk maintains its own registry of dynamic codecs and desired payload numbers. While an SDP negotiation may result in a codec using a different payload number these desired ones are still stored internally. When an RTP packet was received this registry would be consulted if the payload number was not found in the negotiated SDP. This registry was incorrectly consulted for all packets, even those which are dynamic. If the payload number resulted in a codec of a different type than the RTP stream (for example the payload number resulted in a video codec but the stream carried audio) a crash could occur if no stream of that type had been negotiated. This was due to the code incorrectly assuming that a stream of the type would always exist.

CVE Name CVE-2018-7285

Description The RTP support in Asterisk maintains its own registry of
dynamic codecs and desired payload numbers. While an SDP
negotiation may result in a codec using a different payload
number these desired ones are still stored internally. When
an RTP packet was received this registry would be consulted
if the payload number was not found in the negotiated SDP.
This registry was incorrectly consulted for all packets,
even those which are dynamic. If the payload number
resulted in a codec of a different type than the RTP stream
(for example the payload number resulted in a video codec
but the stream carried audio) a crash could occur if no
stream of that type had been negotiated. This was due to
the code incorrectly assuming that a stream of the type
would always exist.

Resolution The RTP support will now only consult the registry for
payloads which are statically defined. The core has also
been changed to protect against situations where a frame of
media is received for a media type that has not been
negotiated.

To receive these fixes update to the given version of
Asterisk or apply the provided patch. There is no
configuration which can protect against this vulnerability.
