Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :

is configured to use aggressive mode, then it did not check whether
the peer sent all required payloads during the IKE negotiation phase.
A malicious IPsec peer could exploit this to crash the racoon daemon.

Please be aware that racoon is not officially supported by Ubuntu, the
package is in the 'universe' component of the archive.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- ipsec-tools-0.6-1ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
