USN-450-1: ipsec-tools vulnerability

9 April 2007

ipsec-tools vulnerability



A flaw was discovered in the IPSec key exchange server "racoon". Remote
attackers could send a specially crafted packet and disrupt established
IPSec tunnels, leading to a denial of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10
  • racoon - 1:0.6.6-1ubuntu1.1
Ubuntu 6.06
  • racoon - 1:0.6.5-4ubuntu1.1
Ubuntu 5.10
  • racoon - 1:0.6-1ubuntu1.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
