Fedora Core 2 : ipsec-tools-0.2.5-4 (2004-197)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

When configured to use X.509 certificates to authenticate remote
hosts, ipsec-tools versions 0.3.3 and earlier will attempt to verify
that host certificate, but will not abort the key exchange if the
verification fails.

Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to this updated package which
contains a backported security patch and is not vulnerable 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.
