Description :

strongswan was updated to fix two security issues :

An issue that could enable rogue servers to gain user credentials from
a client in certain IKEv2 setups. (CVE-2015-4171)

A bug in decoding ID_DER_ASN1_DN ID payloads that could be used for
remote denial of service attacks. (CVE-2014-2891)
