Description

The Asterisk project reports:

There is a buffer overflow vulnerability in dns_srv

and dns_naptr functions of Asterisk that allows an attacker

to crash Asterisk via a specially crafted DNS SRV or NAPTR

response. The attackers request causes Asterisk to segfault

and crash.

Solution(s)

  • freebsd-upgrade-package-asterisk15
  • freebsd-upgrade-package-asterisk16

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
