Most of the links lead to the corresponding files at CERT or other organisations. So changes take place immediately, especially which patches should be installed or which changes in the configuration should be made to avoid this vulnerability. Some of the files are transferred by FTP.

By the way: If we're not publishing well-known risks inheritant in any widely used platform or program that doesn't mean this particular platform or program is safe to use!

Chosen message with ID ae-201206-002

System: Debian GNU/Linux 6
Topic: Vulnerability in strongswan
Links: dsa-2483, CVE-2012-2388, ESB-2012.0510
ID: ae-201206-002

An authentication bypass issue was discovered in strongSwan, an IPsec-based VPN solution. When using RSA-based setups, a missing check in the gmp plugin could allow an attacker presenting a forged signature to successfully authenticate against a strongSwan responder. New packets are available for download, to fix this issue.
