UDP DoS in Win2k via IKE

10th Dec 2001 [SBWID-4910]

	UDP DoS in Win2k via IKE


	Win 2000


	c0redump found a DoS on Win 2K, via IKE flood.

	A DoS attack can be carried out on Win2k machines running IKE  (internet
	key exchange) by sending flooding IKE with UDP packets. This  can  cause
	the machine to lock up and render 99% of the CPU.



	Connect to port 500 (IKE)  of  the  Win2k  box  and  start  sending  UDP
	packets of more than 800 bytes continuously.  The  box  will  eventually
	stop responding and services will be denied due to 99%  CPU  usage  from
	the packets.


	Darren Reed added :

	Because of the crypto involved, this sounds very similar to the  problem
	described in the paper presented at Usenix Security 2001 on DoS  attacks
	against secure web servers (I think 6 clients are required  to  make  an
	https server practically unusable). I wonder if a  similar  solution  is

	When IPSec is not in use, filter UDP dst port 500 on your border  router
	/ firewall. If you don\'t have a border router or firewall, then one  of
	the various  commercially  available  \"personal  type\"  firewalls  can

	Notice that with built in Windows  2000  IPSec  filters  you  *can  not*
	firewall  port  500  off  (see  also  Microsoft  Knowledgebase   article

	If you are actively  making  usage  of  IPSec  at  your  site,  then  an
	immediate fix to this problem might not be available. ACL Lists on  your
	Firewall/Router may help by limiting the range of IP addresses that  are
	allowed to send UDP port 500 traffic to you,  so  that  only  legitimate
	IPSec tunnel partners can reach your server, might help.
