Title: Asterisk: Root privilege escalation (GLSA 202006-20)
A vulnerability was discovered in Asterisk which may allow local
attackers to gain root privileges.
A Modular Open Source PBX System.
Vulnerable: < 13.32.0-r1
Unaffected: >= 13.32.0-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that Gentoo’s Asterisk ebuild does not properly set
permissions on its data directories. This only affects OpenRC systems, as
the flaw was exploitable via the init script.
A local attacker could escalate privileges.
Users should ensure the proper permissions are set as discussed in the
referenced bugs. Do not run /etc/init.d/asterisk checkperms.
All Asterisk users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/asterisk-13.32.0-r1"
