Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-09-14 10:26:59 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #284874 +++

CVE-2008-7220 (
  Unspecified vulnerability in Prototype JavaScript framework
  (prototypejs) before allows attackers to make "cross-site
  ajax requests" via unknown vectors.

Asterisk ships prototype 1.4.0 in static-http/prototype.js
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-11-04 20:46:19 UTC
AST-2009-008 (
It is possible to determine if a peer with a specific name is configured in Asterisk by sending a specially crafted REGISTER message twice. The username that is to be checked is put in the user portion of the URI in the To header. A bogus non-matching value is put into the username portion of the Digest in the Authorization header. If the peer does exist the second REGISTER will receive a response of “403 Authentication user name does not match account name”. If the peer does not exist the response will be “404 Not Found” if alwaysauthreject is disabled and “401 Unauthorized” if alwaysauthreject is enabled.

AST-2009-009 (
Asterisk includes a demonstration AJAX based manager interface, ajamdemo.html which uses the prototype.js framework. An issue was uncovered in this framework which could allow someone to execute a cross-site AJAX request exploit.

voip: Please bump.
