    Package        : strongswan
    Vulnerability  : Denial of service and authorization bypass
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-6075
    
    A vulnerability has been found in the ASN.1 parser of strongSwan, an IKE
    daemon used to establish IPsec protected links.
    
    By sending a crafted ID_DER_ASN1_DN ID payload to a vulnerable pluto or
    charon daemon, a malicious remote user can provoke a denial of service
    (daemon crash) or an authorization bypass (impersonating a different
    user, potentially acquiring VPN permissions she doesn't have).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.4.1-5.4.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.2-1.5+deb7u2.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.1.0-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.1.0-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your strongswan packages.
