The remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


The remote host has a version of McAfee Firewall Enterprise installed that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to an assertion flaw that occurs when handling TKEY queries. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to cause a REQUIRE assertion failure and daemon exit, resulting in a denial of service condition.
