Title: strongSwan: Multiple Vulnerabilities (GLSA 201412-26)
Date: December 13, 2014
Bug(s): #507722, #509832
Two vulnerabilities have been found in strongSwan, possibly
resulting in Denial of Service or a bypass in authentication restrictions.
strongSwan is an IPSec implementation for Linux.
Vulnerable: < 5.1.3
Unaffected: >= 5.1.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
A NULL pointer dereference and an error in the IKEv2 implementation have
been found in strongSwan.
A remote attacker could create a Denial of Service condition or bypass
There is no known workaround at this time.
All strongSwan users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/strongswan-5.1.3"
