Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:069: ipsec-tools

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ipsec-tools package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:069 (ipsec-tools).


A vulnerability in racoon prior to version 20040408a would permit a remote
attacker to cause a DoS (memory consumption) via an ISAKMP packet with a large
length field.
Another vulnerability in racoon was discovered where, when using RSA signatures,
racoon would validate the X.509 certificate but would not validate the
signature. This can be exploited by a possible hacker sending a valid and trusted
X.509 certificate and any private key. Using this, they could perform a
man-in-the-middle attack and initiate an unauthorized connection. This has been
fixed in ipsec-tools 0.3.3.
The updated packages contain patches backported from 0.3.3 to correct the
problem.
