IPsec-Tools is a port of KAME's implementation of the IPsec
utilities. It contains a collection of network monitoring tools,
including racoon, ping, and ping6.
Sebastian Krahmer has reported a potential remote Denial of
Service vulnerability in the ISAKMP header parsing code of racoon.
<impact type="normal">
An attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service of racoon
using a specially crafted ISAKMP packet.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All IPsec-Tools users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-firewall/ipsec-tools-0.4-r1&quot;</code>
