Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51904
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:232
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:232.

The ipsec-tools package is used in conjunction with the IPsec functionality
in the linux kernel. The ipsec-tools package includes:

- - setkey, a program to directly manipulate policies and SAs
- - racoon, an IKEv1 keying daemon

A bug was found in the way the racoon daemon handled incoming ISAKMP
requests. It is possible that an attacker could crash the racoon daemon by
sending a specially crafted ISAKMP packet. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0398 to
this issue.

Additionally, the following issues have been fixed:
- - racoon mishandled restarts in the presence of stale administration sockets.
- - on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, racoon and setkey did not properly set up
forward policies, which prevented tunnels from working.

Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches, and is not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date

Risk factor : Medium

CVSS Score:
5.0
