[Fedora-tools-list] Issue on ipsec-tools-0.2.5-1.i386.rpm in FC2

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Now I'm using ipsec-tools-0.2.5-1.i386.rpm in my Fedora Core 2 ( with kernel 2.6.5 ).
Today, I saw in IPsec Tools Homepage (http://ipsec-tools.sourceforge.net/), there is a statement which says:
>IMPORTANT: Users of IPsec-tools are strongly recommended to
>upgrade to a version released on or after 2004-04-05. Older versions
>contain a security problem that bites connections authorized with
>X.509 certificates
Then, Does the ipsec-tools-0.2.5-1.i386.rpm in FC2 also has such a security problem? (i.e. has some security fixs been added into the ipsec-tools-0.2.5-1.i386.rpm, and can we use the rpm package with no such a danger? )   
And, if I use ipsec-tools-0.3.3-1.i386.rpm instead of ipsec-tools-0.2.5-1.i386.rpm while do not change any other components in my FC2(including FC2 itself), will the update cause any conflict or compatible issue to my FC2 box? (i.e. Can I use ipsec-tools-0.3.3-1.i386.rpm in my FC2 box safely? )
Thanks a lot.
