Advisory ID:       RHSA-2005:232-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-232.html
Issue date:        2005-03-23

Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names:         CAN-2005-0398
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

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

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

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
