    hi guys

    i think i found a major chunk of the patch for 3.1 (the patch is still awol, i'm asking around why it is). if you look at the changes for src/sbin/isakmpd/message.c you'll see the message "Receiving IKE payloads out of sequence can cause isakmpd to crash.". the diff (for 3.0) is here:

    we'll update once the patch is visible ... in the meantime, dig around in the source and cvs up if you have to, it appears this hasn't even been tagged for 3.1-stable or HEAD.

    Does this mean they'll have to take the "no remote holes in five years" down off the website?????

      a) they already did when they fixed sshd recently.
      b) isakmpd doesn't run by default
      c) there is no mention of exploitability (but that doesn't mean its just a realibility fix)

        This was intended as sarcasm, btw. :)
