FreeBSD : racoon fails to verify signature during Phase 1 (d8769838-8814-11d8-90d1-0020ed76ef5a)

High Nessus Plugin ID 37923


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Ralf Spenneberg discovered a serious flaw in racoon. When using Phase 1 main or aggressive mode, racoon does not verify the client's RSA signature. Any installations using X.509 authentication are strongly urged to upgrade.

Installations using pre-shared keys are believed to be unaffected.


Update the affected package.
