[ SUMMARY ]

OPAL (Open Phone Abstraction Layer) is an implementation of various telephony and video communication protocols for use over packet based networks. It's based on code from the OpenH323 project and adds new features such as a stream based architecture, better support for re- use or removal of sub-components,
and explicit support for additional protocols.


[ AFFECTED VERSIONS ]

Following versions are affected with this issue:

    - OPAL 2.2.8 and prior.

Some applications which use this library are affected too:

    - Ekiga 2.0.9 and prior.


[ DESCRIPTION ]

File:  sippdu.cxx
Function:  SIP_PDU::Read(OpalTransport & transport)
Instruction:  entityBody[contentLength] = '\0';

An insufficient input validation of the Content-Length field of a SIP request cause the application to
crash due to a memory mismanagement.
