Description

According to the version in its SIP banner, the version of Asterisk running on the remote host is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities in the PJSIP channel driver :

  • A security bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the 'res_pjsip_acl' module which may allow a remote attacker to bypass ACL rules for rejecting SIP requests from certain hosts. (CVE-2014-8413)

  • A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a race condition in the 'chan_pjsip' channel driver which could allow a remote attacker to crash the application. (CVE-2014-8415)

  • A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the 'res_pjsip_refer' module that is triggered when handling an INVITE with 'Replaces' message that has been sent after a session has already been established. By using a specially crafted request, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash the application. (CVE-2014-8416)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
