[BSA-061] Security Update for openswan

Harald Jenny uploaded new packages for openswan which fixed the
following security problems:

  Use-after-free vulnerability in the cryptographic helper handler
  functionality in Openswan 2.3.0 through 2.6.36 allows remote
  authenticated users to cause a denial of service (pluto IKE daemon
  crash) via vectors related to the (1) quick_outI1_continue and (2)
  quick_outI1 functions.

For the squeeze-backports distribution the problems have been fixed in
version 1:2.6.28+dfsg-5+squeeze1~bpo50+1.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.4.12+dfsg-1.3+lenny3.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.6.28+dfsg-5+squeeze1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.6.37-1.

Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the package
manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with
the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update.

We recommend to pin (in /etc/apt/preferences) the backports repository
to 200 so that new versions of installed  backports will be installed

  Package: *
  Pin: release a=lenny-backports
  Pin-Priority: 200

Kind regards
Harald Jenny
