Asterisk Project Security Advisory - AST-2012-015 Product Asterisk Summary Denial of Service Through Exploitation of Device State Caching Nature of Advisory Denial of Service Susceptibility Remote Unauthenticated Sessions Severity Critical Exploits Known None Reported On 26 July, 2012 Reported By Russell Bryant Posted On 2 January, 2013 Last Updated On January 2, 2013 Advisory Contact Matt Jordan <mjordan AT digium DOT com> CVE Name CVE-2012-5977 Description Asterisk maintains an internal cache for devices. The device state cache holds the state of each device known to Asterisk, such that consumers of device state information can query for the last known state for a particular device, even if it is not part of an active call. The concept of a device in Asterisk can include things that do not have a physical representation. One way that this currently occurs is when anonymous calls are allowed in Asterisk. A device is automatically created and stored in the cache for each anonymous call that occurs; this is possible in the SIP and IAX2 channel drivers and through channel drivers that utilize the res_jabber/res_xmpp resource modules (Gtalk, Jingle, and Motif). Attackers exploiting this vulnerability can attack an Asterisk system configured to allow anonymous calls by varying the source of the anonymous call, continually adding devices to the device state cache and consuming a system's resources. Resolution Channels that are not associated with a physical device are no longer stored in the device state cache. This affects Local, DAHDI, SIP and IAX2 channels, and any channel drivers built on the res_jabber/res_xmpp resource modules (Gtalk, Jingle, and Motif).
