    Package : strongswan
    CVE ID : CVE-2021-45079

    Zhuowei Zhang discovered a bug in the EAP authentication client code of strongSwan, an IKE/IPsec suite, that may allow to bypass the client and in some scenarios even the server authentication, or could lead to a denial-of-service attack.

    When using EAP authentication (RFC 3748), the successful completion of the authentication is indicated by an EAP-Success message sent by the server to the client. strongSwan's EAP client code handled early EAP-Success messages incorrectly, either crashing the IKE daemon or concluding the EAP method prematurely.

    End result depend on the used configuration, more details can be found in upstream advisory at https://www.strongswan.org/blog/2022/01/24/strongswan-vulnerability-(cve-2021-45079).html

    For the oldstable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed
    in version 5.7.2-1+deb10u2.

    For the stable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.9.1-1+deb11u2.
