Rule Vulnerability

Buffer Overflow

Buffer Overflows occur when a memory location is filled past its expected boundaries. Computer attackers target systems without proper terminating conditions on buffers, which then write the additional information in other locations in memory, overwriting what is there. This could corrupt the data, making the system behave erratically or crash. The new information could include malicious executable code, which might be executed.

CVE-2013-2686
main/http.c in the HTTP server in Asterisk Open Source 1.8.x before 1.8.20.2, 10.x before 10.12.2, and 11.x before 11.2.2; Certified Asterisk 1.8.15 before 1.8.15-cert2; and Asterisk Digiumphones 10.x-digiumphones before 10.12.2-digiumphones does not properly restrict Content-Length values, which allows remote attackers to conduct stack-consumption attacks and cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a crafted HTTP POST request. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2012-5976.
