AST-2017-014: res_pjsip - Missing contact header can cause crash
Those SIP messages that create dialogs require a contact header to be present.
If the contact header was missing from the message it could cause Asterisk to.
This patch checks to make sure SIP messages that create a dialog contain the.
Contact header. If the message does not and it is required Asterisk now returns
a "400 Missing Contact header" response. Also added NULL checks when retrieving.
The contact header that were missing as a "just in case".

AST-2017-012: Place single RTCP report block at beginning of report.
When the RTCP code was transitioned over to Stasis a code change.
Was made to keep track of how many reports are present. This count
Controlled where report blocks were placed in the RTCP report.
If a compound RTCP packet was received this logic would incorrectly.
Place a report block in the wrong location resulting in a write
to an invalid location.
This change removes this counting logic and always places the report.
Block at the first position. If in the future multiple reports are
Supported the logic can be extended but for now keeping a count
Serves no purpose.

AST-2017-013: chan_skinny: Call pthread_detach when sess threads end
Chan_skinny creates a new thread for each new session. In trying
to be a good cleanup citizen, the threads are joinable and the.
Unload_module function does a pthread_cancel() and a pthread_join()
on any sessions that are active at that time. This has an.
Unintended side effect though. Since you can call pthread_join on a
Thread that's already terminated, pthreads keeps the thread's
Storage around until you explicitly call pthread_join (or
Pthread_detach()). Since only the module_unload function was
Calling pthread_join, and even then only on the ones active at the
Tme, the storage for every thread/session ever created sticks
Around until asterisk exits.
A thread can detach itself so the session_destroy() function.
Now calls pthread_detach() just before it frees the session
Memory allocation. The module_unload function still takes care
of the ones that are still active should the module be unloaded.

Res_pjsip: Add to list of valid characters for from_user.
a regression where some characters were unable to be used in.
The from_user field of an endpoint. Additionally, the backtick was
Removed from the list of valid characters, since it is not valid,
And it was replaced with a single quote, which is a valid character. res_pjsip_registrar.c: AOR and pjproject group deadlock.
One of the patches for ASTERISK_27147 introduced a deadlock regression.
When the connection oriented transport shut down, the code attempted to.
Remove the associated contact. However, that same transport had just
Requested a registration that we hadn't responded to yet. Depending
Upon timing we could deadlock.
Made send the REGISTER response after we completed processing the.
Request contacts and released the AOR lock to avoid the deadlock.

AST-2017-009: pjproject: Add validation of numeric header values
Parsing the numeric header fields like cseq, ttl, port, etc. all.
Had the potential to overflow, either causing unintended values to
be captured or, if the values were subsequently converted back to.
Strings, a buffer overrun. To address this, new "strto" functions
Have been created that do range checking and those functions are
Used wherever possible in the parser.
Created pjlib/include/limits.h and pjlib/include/compat/limits.h
to either include the system limits.h or define common numeric.
Limits if there is no system limits.h.
Created strto*_validate functions in sip_parser that take bounds.
And on failure call the on_str_parse_error function which prints
an error message and calls PJ_THROW.
Updated sip_parser to validate the numeric fields.
an in sip_transport that prevented error messages.
From being properly displayed.
Added "volatile" to some variables referenced in PJ_CATCH blocks
as the optimizer was sometimes optimizing them away.
Length calculation in sip_transaction/create_tsx_key_2543
to account for signed ints being 11 characters, not 9. AST-2017-011 - res_pjsip_session: session leak when a call is rejected.
A previous commit made it so when an invite session transitioned into a.
Disconnected state destruction of the Asterisk pjsip session object was
Postponed until either a transport error occurred or the event timer
Expired. However, if a call was rejected (for instance a 488) before the
Session was fully established the event timer may not have been initiated,
or it was canceled without triggering either of the session finalizing states.
Really the only time destruction of the session should be delayed is when a
BYE is being transacted. This is because it's possible in some cases for the.
Session to be disconnected, but the BYE is still transacting.
This patch makes it so the session object always gets released (no more.
Memory leak) when the pjsip session is in a dis
