Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 7.04 / 7.10 / 8.04 LTS : ipsec-tools vulnerabilities (USN-641-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

It was discovered that there were multiple ways to leak memory during
the IKE negotiation when handling certain packets. If a remote
attacker sent repeated malicious requests, the 'racoon' key exchange
server could allocate large amounts of memory, possibly leading to a
denial of service.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected ipsec-tools and / or racoon packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
