Asterisk ast_uri_encode() buffer overflow
|asterisk-asturiencode-bo (64831)||High Risk|
Asterisk is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the ast_uri_encode() function. If the SIP channel driver is configured with the pedantic option enabled, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted caller ID information to overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Refer to AST-2011-001 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
