|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: IPsec-Tools: racoon Denial of Service (GLSA 200812-03)
Date: December 02, 2008
IPsec-Tools' racoon is affected by a remote Denial of Service vulnerability.
IPsec-Tools is a port of KAME's implementation of the IPsec utilities. It contains a collection of network monitoring tools, including racoon, ping, and ping6.
Vulnerable: < 0.7.1
Unaffected: >= 0.7.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been reported in racoon:
- The vendor reported a memory leak in racoon/proposal.c that can be triggered via invalid proposals (CVE-2008-3651).
- Krzysztof Piotr Oledzk reported that src/racoon/handler.c does not remove an "orphaned ph1" (phase 1) handle when it has been initiated remotely (CVE-2008-3652).
An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All IPsec-Tools users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-firewall/ipsec-tools-0.7.1"
