  • Buffer overflow in PJSIP, a VoIP open source library
    Kim Youngsung 2018.02.27

    He's a security engineer at LINE. He enjoys looking for bugs and is highly interested in secure coding.

    Hi all, I am Youngsung Kim (Facebook, Twitter) of the Application Security team at LINE and am in charge of evaluating security of LINE services. On this post, I'd like to share a vulnerability (CVE-2017-16872, AST-2017-009) of PJSIP, a VoIP open source library. PJSIP is a multimedia communication library based on the following standard protocols; SIP, SDP, RTP, STUN, TURN, and ICE. The Asterisk framework, widely used on IP-PBX and VoPI gateway has an SIP stack implemented based on PJSIP.

    The cause of the vulnerability was due to incautiousness about sign extension for Integers in the process of converting signed int to unsigned long when handling client's SIP requests on 64-bit environment. There was no window to report the security issue to the PJSIP development teams, so I made my report to the Asterisk's security page. Afterwards, I've consulted with George Joseph, an engineer at Asterisk, and the patch (PJSIP patch, Asterisk patch) has been applied on the pjproject v2.7.1. I'd like to express my gratitude to George for processing the patch.

    He is a security engineer at LINE.

    Hello again, this is Myoungje Yi (MJ) from LINE's security team. I'd like to share our annual report on running the LINE Security Bug Bounty Program in 2017.

    Program scope expansion & donation option

    The 'LINE Security Bug Bounty Program' aims to provide LINE users the most secure service by fixing potential vulnerabilities in advance, by getting reports from external security researchers. As we have already mentioned in our previous post, we have expanded the program scope in 2017, which resulted in an increased number of reports submitted. In November 2017, we have added an option allowing reporters to donate their reward.

  • Outcomes of the LINE Security Bug Bounty Program

    About the LINE Security Bug Bounty Program

    Hello, my name is Lee Myoung Jae (MJ) and I'm in charge of security at LINE. In this post I'm going to talk about the LINE Security Bug Bounty Program and the results of the program in 2016. The LINE Security Bug Bounty Program is an ongoing program to make the LINE app more secure for our users by letting external engineers submit bug (vulnerability) reports which we would then immediately fix.

    We first conducted a trial run of the program called the LINE Bug Bounty Program from August 24 to September 23 in 2015. Based on our experience from that trial, we made various changes to create an improved bug bounty program for 2016. And on June 2, 2016, we launched the new and improved LINE Security Bug Bounty Program.
