CVE Name

Description No size checking is done when setting the user field for
Party B 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. The earlier AST-2017-001
advisory for the CDR user field overflow was for the Party
A buffer.

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.
