<description>
<p>
The Madynes research team at INRIA has discovered that Asterisk
contains a null pointer dereferencing error in the SIP channel when
handling INVITE messages. Furthermore qwerty1979 discovered that
Asterisk 1.2.x fails to properly handle SIP responses with return code
0.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could cause an Asterisk server listening for SIP
messages to crash by sending a specially crafted SIP message or
answering with a 0 return code.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Asterisk users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose net-misc/asterisk</code>
<p>
Note: Asterisk 1.0.x is no longer supported upstream so users should
consider upgrading to Asterisk 1.2.x.
