Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
Package name: ipsec-tools
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:027
Date: April 8th, 2004
Affected versions: 10.0
A very serious security flaw was discovered by Ralf Spenneberg in racoon, the IKE daemon of the KAME-tools. Racoon does not very the RSA signature during phase one of a connection using either main or aggressive mode. Only the certificate of the client is verified, the certificate is not used to verify the client's signature.
All versions of ipsec-tools prior to 0.2.5 and 0.3rc5 are vulnerable to this issue. The provided package updates ipsec-tools to 0.2.5.
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
