The Asterisk Development Team has announced security releases for Certified
Asterisk 1.8.11 and Asterisk 1.8 and 10. The available security releases are released as versions 1.8.11-cert4, 188.8.131.52, 10.5.2, and 10.5.2-digiumphones.
These releases are available for immediate download at http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/releases
The release of Asterisk 1.8.11-cert4, 184.108.40.206, 10.5.2, and 10.5.2-digiumphones resolve the following two issues:
* If Asterisk sends a re-invite and an endpoint responds to the re-invite with
a provisional response but never sends a final response, then the SIP dialog
structure is never freed and the RTP ports for the call are never released. If
an attacker has the ability to place a call, they could create a denial of
service by using all available RTP ports.
* If a single voicemail account is manipulated by two parties simultaneously,
a condition can occur where memory is freed twice causing a crash.
These issues and their resolution are described in the security advisories.
For more information about the details of these vulnerabilities, please read security advisories AST-2012-010 and AST-2012-011, which were released at the same time as this announcement.
