CVE Name

Description The multi-part body parser in PJSIP contains a logical
error that can make certain multi-part body parts attempt
to read memory from outside the allowed boundaries. A
specially-crafted packet can trigger these invalid reads
and potentially induce a crash.

The issue is within the PJSIP project and not in Asterisk.
Therefore, the problem can be fixed without upgrading
Asterisk. However, we will be releasing a new version of
Asterisk where the bundled version of PJSIP has been
updated to have the bug patched.

If you are using Asterisk with chan_sip, this issue does
not affect you.

Resolution We have submitted the error report to the PJProject
maintainers and have coordinated a release………..
