Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-05-11 05:44:52 EDT
When ipsec-tools receives an ISAKMP header, it will attempt
to allocate sufficient memory for the entire ISAKMP message
according to the header's length field. If an attacker crafts
an ISAKMP header with a extremely large value in the length
field, racoon may exceed operating system resource limits and
be terminated, resulting in a denial of service. CAN-2004-0403
