Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ipsec-tools (MDKSA-2004:069)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A vulnerability in racoon prior to version 20040408a would allow a
remote attacker to cause a DoS (memory consumption) via an ISAKMP
packet with a large length field.

Another vulnerability in racoon was discovered where, when using RSA
signatures, racoon would validate the X.509 certificate but would not
validate the signature. This can be exploited by an attacker sending a
valid and trusted X.509 certificate and any private key. Using this,
they could perform a man-in-the-middle attack and initiate an
unauthorized connection. This has been fixed in ipsec-tools 0.3.3.

The updated packages contain patches backported from 0.3.3 to correct
the problem.

Solution :

Update the affected ipsec-tools, lib64ipsec-tools0 and / or
libipsec-tools0 packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
