Fedora Core 2 : ipsec-tools-0.2.5-4 (2004-197)
High Nessus Plugin ID 13732
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionWhen configured to use X.509 certificates to authenticate remote hosts, ipsec-tools versions 0.3.3 and earlier will attempt to verify that host certificate, but will not abort the key exchange if the verification fails.
Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to this updated package which contains a backported security patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected ipsec-tools and / or ipsec-tools-debuginfo packages.
