                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           freeswan
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:070
 Date:                   July 14th, 2004

 Affected versions:      10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
                         Multi Network Firewall 8.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 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.
