The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
The Oulu University Secure Programming Group discovered a remote
Denial of Service vulnerability in the racoon daemon. When the daemon
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.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected ipsec-tools and / or racoon packages.
