    - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    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 AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    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
    150179 - ipsec/racoon/setkey does not properly forward packets to vpn peer
