Synopsis :

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

Description :

strongSwan developers report :

Remote attackers are able to bypass authentication by rekeying an
IKE_SA during (1) initiation or (2) re-authentication, which triggers
the IKE_SA state to be set to established.

Only installations that actively initiate or re-authenticate IKEv2
IKE_SAs are affected.
