   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | Description | The Asterisk IAX2 channel driver, chan_iax2, has a       |
   |             | remotely exploitable crash vulnerability. A NULL pointer |
   |             | exception can occur when Asterisk receives a LAGRQ or    |
   |             | LAGRP frame that is part of a valid session and includes |
   |             | information elements. The session used to exploit this   |
   |             | issue does not have to be authenticated. It can simply   |
   |             | be a NEW packet sent with an invalid username.           |
   |             |                                                          |
   |             | The code that parses the incoming frame correctly parses |
   |             | the information elements of IAX frames. It then sets a   |
   |             | pointer to NULL to indicate that there is not a raw data |
   |             | payload associated with this frame. However, it does not |
   |             | set the variable that indicates the number of bytes in   |
   |             | the raw payload back to zero. Since the raw data length  |
   |             | is non-zero, the code handling LAGRQ and LAGRP frames    |
   |             | tries to copy data from a NULL pointer, causing a crash. |

   +------------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | Resolution | All users that have chan_iax2 enabled should upgrade to   |
   |            | the appropriate version listed in the corrected in        |
   |            | section of this advisory.                                 |
