An ipsec-tools update has been released for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Security Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : ipsec-tools
Version : 0.2.5
Release : 2
Summary : Tools for configuring and using IPSEC
Description :
This is the IPsec-Tools package. You need this package in order to really use the IPsec functionality in the linux-2.5+ kernels. This package builds:

- libipsec, a PFKeyV2 library
- setkey, a program to directly manipulate policies and SAs
- racoon, an IKEv1 keying daemon

Update Information:

An updated ipsec-tools package that fixes vulnerabilities in racoon (the ISAKMP daemon) is now available.

When ipsec-tools receives an ISAKMP header, it will attempt to allocate sufficient memory for the entire ISAKMP message according to the header's length field. If an attacker crafts an ISAKMP header with a extremely large value in the length field, racoon may exceed operating system resource limits and be terminated, resulting in a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0403 to this issue.
