Asterisk 13.19.2, 14.7.6, 15.2.2 and 13.18-cert3 Now Available (Security)

The Asterisk Development Team would like to announce security releases for
Asterisk 13, 14 and 15, and Certified Asterisk 13.18. The available releases are
released as versions 13.19.2, 14.7.6, 15.2.2 and 13.18-cert3.

These releases are available for immediate download at

The following security vulnerabilities were resolved in these versions:

    • AST-2018-001: Crash when receiving unnegotiated dynamic payload
      The RTP support in Asterisk maintains its own registry of dynamic codecs and
      desired payload numbers. While an SDP negotiation may result in a codec using
      a different payload number these desired ones are still stored internally.
      When an RTP packet was received this registry would be consulted if the
      payload number was not found in the negotiated SDP. This registry was
      incorrectly consulted for all packets, even those which are dynamic. If the
      payload number resulted in a codec of a different type than the RTP stream
      (for example the payload number resulted in a video codec but the stream
      carried audio) a crash could occur if no stream of that type had been
      negotiated. This was due to the code incorrectly assuming that a stream of the
      type would always exist.


    • AST-2018-002: Crash when given an invalid SDP media format description
      By crafting an SDP message with an invalid media format description Asterisk
      crashes when using the pjsip channel driver because pjproject’s sdp parsing
      algorithm fails to catch the invalid media format description.


    • AST-2018-003: Crash with an invalid SDP fmtp attribute
      By crafting an SDP message body with an invalid fmtp attribute Asterisk
      crashes when using the pjsip channel driver because pjproject’s fmtp retrieval
      function fails to check if fmtp value is empty (set empty if previously parsed
      as invalid).


    • AST-2018-004: Crash when receiving SUBSCRIBE request
      When processing a SUBSCRIBE request the res_pjsip_pubsub module stores the
      accepted formats present in the Accept headers of the request. This code did
      not limit the number of headers it processed despite having a fixed limit of
      32. If more than 32 Accept headers were present the code would write outside
      of its memory and cause a crash.


    • AST-2018-005: Crash when large numbers of TCP connections are closed suddenly
      A crash occurs when a number of authenticated INVITE messages are sent over
      TCP or TLS and then the connection is suddenly closed. This issue leads to a
      segmentation fault.


  • AST-2018-006: WebSocket frames with 0 sized payload causes DoS
    When reading a websocket, the length was not being checked. If a payload of
    length 0 was read, it would result in a busy loop that waited for the
    underlying connection to close.
