Synopsis :

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

Description :

strongSwan Project reports :

An information leak vulnerability was fixed that, in certain IKEv2
setups, allowed rogue servers with a valid certificate accepted by the
client to trick it into disclosing user credentials (even plain
passwords if the client accepts EAP-GTC). This was caused because
constraints against the server's authentication were enforced too
late. All versions since 4.3.0 are affected.
