Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:123 (shorewall).

A vulnerability was discovered in all versions of shorewall where a client

MACLIST_TTL is set to a value greater than 0 or MACLIST_DISPOSITION is set to
ACCEPT in shorewall.conf, and a client is positively identified through its MAC
address, it bypasses all other policies and rules in place, gaining access to
all open services on the firewall.

Shorewall 2.0.17 is provided which fixes this issue.
