FreeBSD : strongswan -- multiple vulnerabilities (e6ccaf8a-6c63-11e7-9b01-2047478f2f70)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 101829
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionstrongSwan security team reports :
- RSA public keys passed to the gmp plugin aren't validated sufficiently before attempting signature verification, so that invalid input might lead to a floating point exception. [CVE-2017-9022]
- ASN.1 CHOICE types are not correctly handled by the ASN.1 parser when parsing X.509 certificates with extensions that use such types.
This could lead to infinite looping of the thread parsing a specifically crafted certificate.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
