Package : srtp
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-2139
Debian Bug : 711163

Fernando Russ from Groundworks Technologies reported a buffer overflow
flaw in srtp, Cisco's reference implementation of the Secure Real-time
Transport Protocol (SRTP), in how the
crypto_policy_set_from_profile_for_rtp() function applies
cryptographic profiles to an srtp_policy. A remote attacker could
exploit this vulnerability to crash an application linked against
libsrtp, resulting in a denial of service.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.4~dfsg-6+deb6u1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.4+20100615~dfsg-2+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.5~20130609~dfsg-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.5~20130609~dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your srtp packages.
