Fedora Core 4 : openswan-2.4.4-1.0.FC4.1 (2005-1093)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20243


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


NISCC has reported two Denial of Service issues in Openswan. The first involves a specially crafted 3DES packet with an invalid key length.

The Openswan project has released version 2.4.4 to fix both issues.

See http://www.openswan.org/ for details.

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.


Update the affected openswan and / or openswan-doc packages.
