    Package        : strongswan
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-2891
    
    A vulnerability has been found in the ASN.1 parser of strongSwan, an
    IKE/IPsec suite 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 null pointer
    dereference in the daemon parsing the identity, leading to a crash and a
    denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.4.1-5.6.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.2-1.5+deb7u4.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.1.2-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.1.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your strongswan packages.
