Asterisk database-based registration security bypass
|asterisk-registration-security-bypass (39124)||Medium Risk|
Asterisk could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the failure to check IP addresses when processing a "realtime" database-based registration. By guessing the username of the victim, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass security restrictions and assume the identity of any user that depends on host-based authentication without a password.
Refer to AST-2007-027 for patch, upgrade, or suggested workaround information. See References.
