Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1036
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1036.

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. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker could trigger a NULL pointer dereference
that could cause the racoon daemon to crash. (CVE-2009-1574)

Multiple memory leak flaws were found in the ipsec-tools racoon daemon. If
a remote attacker is able to make multiple connection attempts to the
racoon daemon, it was possible to cause the racoon daemon to consume all
available memory. (CVE-2009-1632)

Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to correct these issues. Users must restart the racoon
daemon for this update to take effect.

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
