FreeBSD : tcpdump ISAKMP payload handling remote denial-of-service (f8551668-de09-4d7b-9720-f1360929df07)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19180
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionChad Loder has discovered vulnerabilities in tcpdump's ISAKMP protocol handler. During an audit to repair these issues, Bill Fenner discovered some related problems.
These vulnerabilities may be used by an attacker to crash a running `tcpdump' process. They can only be triggered if the `-v' command line option is being used.
NOTE: the racoon ISAKMP/IKE daemon incorporates the ISAKMP protocol handler from tcpdump, and so is also affected by this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
