Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2021-005
Posted Feb 19, 2021
Authored by Joshua Colp, Mauri de Souza Meneguzzo | Site asterisk.org

Given a scenario where an outgoing call is placed from Asterisk to a remote SIP server it is possible for a crash to occur. The code responsible for negotiating SDP in SIP responses incorrectly assumes that SDP negotiation will always be successful. If a SIP response containing an SDP that can not be negotiated is received a subsequent SDP negotiation on the same call can cause a crash.

CVE Name CVE-2021-26906

Description Given a scenario where an outgoing call is placed from
Asterisk to a remote SIP server it is possible for a
crash to occur.

The code responsible for negotiating SDP in SIP
responses incorrectly assumes that SDP negotiation
will always be successful. If a SIP response
containing an SDP that can not be negotiated is
received a subsequent SDP negotiation on the same call
can cause a crash.

If the “accept_multiple_sdp_answers” option in the
“system” section of pjsip.conf is set to “yes” then
any subsequent non-forked SIP response with SDP can
trigger this crash.

If the “follow_early_media_fork” option in the
“system” section of pjsip.conf is set to “yes” (the
default) then any subsequent SIP responses with SDP
from a forked destination can trigger this crash.

If a 200 OK with SDP is received from a forked
destination it can also trigger this crash, even if
the “follow_early_media_fork” option is not set to
“yes”.

In all cases this relies on a race condition with
tight timing where the second SDP negotiation occurs
before termination of the call due to the initial SDP
negotiation failure.
Modules Affected res_pjsip_session.c, PJSIP

Resolution The issue has been fixed in PJSIP by changing the behavior
of the pjmedia_sdp_neg_modify_local_offer2 function. If SDP
was previously negotiated the code no longer assumes that it
was successful and instead checks that SDP was negotiated.

This issue can only be resolved by upgrading to a fixed
version or applying the provided patch.
