Updated asterisk packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 15 Apr 2014
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2014-2286 , CVE-2014-2287

Description

Updated asterisk packages fix security vulnerabilities:

In Asterisk before 11.8.1, sending a HTTP request that is handled by Asterisk
with a large number of Cookie headers could overflow the stack. You could
even exhaust memory if you sent an unlimited number of headers in the request
(CVE-2014-2286).

In Asterisk before 11.8.1, an attacker can use all available file descriptors
using SIP INVITE requests. Each INVITE meeting certain conditions will leak a
channel and several file descriptors. The file descriptors cannot be released
without restarting Asterisk which may allow intrusion detection systems to be
bypassed by sending the requests slowly (CVE-2014-2287).
