Name: CVE-2008-1198
Status: Candidate
Reference: MISC:
Reference: CONFIRM:

The default IPSec ifup script in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 through 5
configures racoon to use aggressive IKE mode instead of main IKE mode,
which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct brute force
attacks by sniffing an unencrypted preshared key (PSK) hash.
