FreeBSD : racoon remote denial of service vulnerability (ISAKMP header length field) (ccd698df-8e20-11d8-90d1-0020ed76ef5a)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

When racoon 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
ridiculously large value in the length field, racoon may exceed
operating system resource limits and be terminated, resulting in a
denial of service.
