Racoon invalid cookie malloc bug

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Racoon invalid cookie malloc bug

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote system appears to have a problem with processing
invalid requests with invalid cookie values. At least one
VPN product (racoon) demonstrates this flaw. Racoon is integrated
with:

FreeBSD 4.0 and beyond
OpenBSD 2.7 and beyond
NetBSD 1.5 and beyond
BSD/OS 4.2 and beyond

However, the bug has only been verified on FreeBSD systems.

A possible hacker may use this flaw to disable your VPN remotely.

Solution : If you are running racoon VPN, download and install
the latest SNAP kit from http://www.kame.net. If you are running
a non-racoon VPN server which is crashing due to this check, consult
your vendor for a fix.
