Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: freeswan
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:070
Date: July 14th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Thomas Walpuski discovered a vulnerability in the X.509 handling of super-freeswan, openswan, strongSwan, and FreeS/WAN with the X.509 patch applied. This vulnerability allows an attacker to make up their own Certificate Authority that can allow them to impersonate the identity of a valid DN. As well, another hole exists in the CA checking code that could create an endless loop in certain instances.

Mandrakesoft encourages all users who use FreeS/WAN or super-freeswan to upgrade to the updated packages which are patched to correct these flaws.
