Detail

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities in Asterisk might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Background

Asterisk is an open source telephony engine and toolkit.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Asterisk:

* An error in manager.c allows shell access through the MixMonitor application, GetVar, or Status (CVE-2012-2414).
* An error in chan_skinny.c could cause a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2012-2415).
* An error in chan_sip.c prevents Asterisk from checking if a channel exists before connected line updates (CVE-2012-2416).
* An error in chan_iax2.c may cause an invalid pointer to be called (CVE-2012-2947).
* chan_skinny.c contains a NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2012-2948).

Impact

A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Asterisk users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/asterisk-1.8.12.1"
