Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:020: 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 SUSE-SA:2005:020 (ipsec-tools).


Racoon is a ISAKMP key management daemon used in IPsec setups.

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE Security Team audited the daemon and
found that it handles certain ISAKMP messages in a slightly wrong way,
so that remote attackers can crash it via malformed ISAKMP packages.

This update fixes this problem.

This is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2005-0398.
