Synopsis: Moderate: ipsec-tools security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:232-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-232.html
Issue date: 2005-03-23
Updated on: 2005-03-23
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0398
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

An updated ipsec-tools package that fixes a bug in parsing of ISAKMP headers is now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The ipsec-tools package is used in conjunction with the IPsec functionality
in the linux kernel. The ipsec-tools package includes:

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

A bug was found in the way the racoon daemon handled incoming ISAKMP
requests. It is possible that an attacker could crash the racoon daemon by
sending a specially crafted ISAKMP packet. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0398 to
this issue.

Additionally, the following issues have been fixed:
- - racoon mishandled restarts in the presence of stale administration sockets.
- - on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, racoon and setkey did not properly set up
forward policies, which prevented tunnels from working.

Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches, and is not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

145531 - EMBARGOED CAN-2005-0398 multiple issues with racoon
145535 - EMBARGOED CAN-2005-0398 multiple issues with racoon
148950 - racoon unable to start with stale socket /tmp/.racoon
