Description

charon/sa/ike_sa.c in the charon daemon in strongSWAN before 4.3.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via an invalid IKE_SA_INIT request that triggers "an incomplete state," followed by a CREATE_CHILD_SA request.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
