    Package        : strongswan
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-8023
    
    Tobias Brunner found an authentication bypass vulnerability in
    strongSwan, an IKE/IPsec suite.
    
    Due to insufficient validation of its local state the server
    implementation of the EAP-MSCHAPv2 protocol in the eap-mschapv2 plugin
    can be tricked into successfully concluding the authentication without
    providing valid credentials.
    
    It's possible to recognize such attacks by looking at the server logs.
    The following log message would be seen during the client
    authentication:
    
      EAP method EAP_MSCHAPV2 succeeded, no MSK established
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 4.5.2-1.5+deb7u8.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.2.1-6+deb8u2.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 5.3.3-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.3.3-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your strongswan packages.
