Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:070: ipsec-tools,freeswan,openswan

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

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:070 (ipsec-tools,freeswan,openswan).


Openswan, Freeswan and raccoon (ipsec-tools) have been updated to fix
crashes in aggressive mode. A possible hacker might send specially crafted
packets that can crash racoon or Pluto.

The ipsec-tools / racoon crashes are tracked by the Mitre CVE ID
CVE-2005-3732.

The openswan / freeswan crashes are tracked by the Mitre CVE ID
CVE-2005-3671.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 and SUSE Linux 9.0 contain freeswan
1.x and seem no to be affected by this problem.
