CVE-2016-9937

NameCVE-2016-9937
DescriptionAn issue was discovered in Asterisk Open Source 13.12.x and 13.13.x before 13.13.1 and 14.x before 14.2.1. If an SDP offer or answer is received with the Opus codec and with the format parameters separated using a space the code responsible for parsing will recursively call itself until it crashes. This occurs as the code does not properly handle spaces separating the parameters. This does NOT require the endpoint to have Opus configured in Asterisk. This also does not require the endpoint to be authenticated. If guest is enabled for chan_sip or anonymous in chan_pjsip an SDP offer or answer is still processed and the crash occurs.

Notes

- asterisk <not-affected> (Introduced in 13.12.0 but fixed with first version to unstable based on 13.12.1)
Vulnerability introduced in 13.12.0, but the first upload to unstable
versioned as 1:13.12.1~dfsg-1 via opus.patch removed the offending
function. Thus Debian was never vulnerable.
