Description

src/racoon/handler.c in racoon in ipsec-tools does not remove an "orphaned ph1" (phase 1) handle when it has been initiated remotely, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption).

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-racoon

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.
