CVE Name

Description No size checking is done when setting the user field on a
CDR. Thus, it is possible for someone to use an arbitrarily
large string and write past the end of the user field
storage buffer. This allows the possibility of remote code

This currently affects any system using CDR's that also
make use of the following:

* The 'X-ClientCode' header within a SIP INFO message when
using chan_sip and

the 'useclientcode' option is enabled (note, it's disabled
by default).

* The CDR dialplan function executed from AMI when setting
the user field.

* The AMI Monitor action when using a long file name/path.

Resolution The CDR engine now only copies up to the maximum allowed
characters into the user field. Any characters outside the
maximum are truncated.
