Problem description

Thomas Walpuski discovered a vulnerability in the X.509 handling of super-freeswan, openswan, strongSwan, and FreeS/WAN with the X.509 patch applied. This vulnerability allows an attacker to make up their own Certificate Authority that can allow them to impersonate the identity of a valid DN. As well, another hole exists in the CA checking code that could create an endless loop in certain instances. Mandrakesoft encourages all users who use FreeS/WAN or super-freeswan to upgrade to the updated packages which are patched to correct these flaws. Update: Due to a build error, the super-freeswan packages did not include the pluto program. The updated packages fix this error.
