New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 1.4
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionLev Stipakov and Gert Doering report :
There is a time frame between allocating peer-id and initializing data channel key (which is performed on receiving push request or on async push-reply) in which the existing peer-id float checks do not work right.
If a 'rogue' data channel packet arrives during that time frame from another address and with same peer-id, this would cause client to float to that new address.
The net effect of this behaviour is that the VPN session for the 'victim client' is broken. Since the 'attacker client' does not have suitable keys, it can not inject or steal VPN traffic from the other session. The time window is small and it can not be used to attack a specific client's session, unless some other way is found to make it disconnect and reconnect first.
