Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0267

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0267.

The ipsec-tools package is used in conjunction with the IPsec functionality
in the linux kernel and includes racoon, an IKEv1 keying daemon.

A denial of service flaw was found in the ipsec-tools racoon daemon. If a
victim's machine has racoon configured in a non-recommended insecure
manner, it is possible for a remote attacker to crash the racoon daemon.

Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches, and are not vulnerable to these issues.

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 : High
