FreeBSD : tcpdump ISAKMP payload handling remote denial-of-service (f8551668-de09-4d7b-9720-f1360929df07)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

Chad Loder has discovered vulnerabilities in tcpdump's ISAKMP protocol
handler. During an audit to repair these issues, Bill Fenner
discovered some related problems.

These vulnerabilities may be used by an attacker to crash a running
`tcpdump' process. They can only be triggered if the `-v' command line
option is being used.

NOTE: the racoon ISAKMP/IKE daemon incorporates the ISAKMP protocol
handler from tcpdump, and so is also affected by this issue.
