Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:123: shorewall

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the shorewall package

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
accepted by MAC address filtering is able to bypass any other rule. If
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.
