Remote DoS in reSIProcate [MU-200807-01]
July 10, 2008
* repro SIP proxy/registrar 1.3.2
* Any product using the reSIProcate SIP stack 1.3.2 may also be vulnerable.
reSIProcate is a SIP stack. SIP is a protocol used for voice-over-IP
telephony. repro is a SIP proxy/registrar that uses the reSIProcate SIP stack.
A malformed INVITE or OPTIONS message to the repro SIP proxy/registrar can
crash the process. The crash is caused by an assertion failure that occurs
when the domain name in the request line URI is too long
(rutil/dns/DnsStub.cxx, line 493). For example, the URI may be
"sip:bob () example comAAAAAAA ", where "sip:bob () example com" is followed by
256 As. To cause the crash, the address in the To header must be a valid
Example invalid packet:
OPTIONS sip:bob () example
Via: SIP/2.0/UDP 127.0.0.1:54422;branch=z9hG4bKZqPsHMEiem;rport
To: "Bob" <sip:bob () example com>
From: "Alice" <sip:alice () example com>;tag=W4eHvLYEQX
Call-ID: nO1DpTVfo4 () mudynamics com
CSeq: 1 OPTIONS
Contact: <sip:alice () 127 0 0 1:54422>
