Description


Wade Alcorn has reported a vulnerability in Asterisk, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is cause due to an error in the processing of commands in the Manager Interface. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code by supplying a specially crafted command string.

Successful exploitation requires that the Manager interface has been enabled (disabled by default), the directive "write = command" has been added to manager.conf, and the user has been authenticated.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.0.7. Prior versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 1.0.8.
