Fedora Core 2 : ipsec-tools-0.2.5-2 (2004-132)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated ipsec-tools package that fixes vulnerabilities in racoon
(the ISAKMP daemon) is now available.

When ipsec-tools receives an ISAKMP header, it will attempt to
allocate sufficient memory for the entire ISAKMP message according to
the header's length field. If an attacker crafts an ISAKMP header with
a extremely large value in the length field, racoon may exceed
operating system resource limits and be terminated, resulting in a
denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0403 to this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
