Package        : strongswan
Vulnerability  : denial of service
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2009-0790


Gerd v. Egidy discovered that the Pluto IKE daemon in strongswan, an
IPSec implementation for linux, is prone to a denial of service attack
via a malicious packet.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.2.4-5+lenny1.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.0+dfsg-1+etch1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your strongswan packages.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
