# Exploit Author: Juan Sacco <juan.sacco@kpn.com> at KPN Red Team - # http://www.kpn.com # Date and time of release: Nov, 15 2017 # Found this and more exploits on my open source security project: # http://www.exploitpack.com # # Tested on: Asterisk 13.17.2~dfsg-2 # # Description: Asterisk is prone to a remote unauthenticated memory exhaustion # The vulnerability is due to an error when the vulnerable application # handles crafted SCCP packet. A remote attacker may be able to exploit # this to cause a denial of service condition on the affected system. # # [Nov 29 15:38:06] ERROR[7763] tcptls.c: TCP/TLS unable to launch # helper thread: Cannot allocate memory # # Program: Asterisk is an Open Source PBX and telephony toolkit.
