Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description :

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:020 (ipsec-tools).


Racoon is a ISAKMP key management daemon used in IPsec setups.

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE Security Team audited the daemon and
found that it handles certain ISAKMP messages in a slightly wrong way,
so that remote attackers can crash it via malformed ISAKMP packages.

This update fixes this problem.
