Mandrake: Updated ipsec-tools packages  31 March 2005 
A bug was discovered in the way that 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 updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Mandrake: Updated krb5 packages fix  29 March 2005 
Two buffer overflow issues were discovered in the way telnet clients handle messages from a server. Because of these issues, an attacker may be able to execute arbitray code on the victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into connecting to a malicious telnet server. The Kerberos package contains a telnet client and is patched to deal with these issues.
