That is due to Andreas Steffen's 0day release of information. I don't think
he wanted to do a CVE at all. When I posted to vendor-sec with the details
that openswan was also vulnerable and we were releasing updates, The CVE people
scrambled to get a CVE, but only based it on the original advisory. I have
since submitted all the information to them to update the advisory.
