Debian Security Advisory DSA-1804-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Nico Golde
May 20th, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ipsec-tools
Vulnerability : null pointer dereference, memory leaks
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug : 527634 528933
CVE ID : CVE-2009-1574 CVE-2009-1632

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in racoon, the Internet Key
Exchange daemon of ipsec-tools. The The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identified the following problems:

Neil Kettle discovered a NULL pointer dereference on crafted fragmented packets
that contain no payload. This results in the daemon crashing which can be used
for denial of service attacks (CVE-2009-1574).

Various memory leaks in the X.509 certificate authentication handling and the
NAT-Traversal keepalive implementation can result in memory exhaustion and
thus denial of service (CVE-2009-1632).


For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.6-3.1etch3.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7.1-1.3+lenny2.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:0.7.1-1.5.


We recommend that you upgrade your ipsec-tools packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
