An advisory about vulnerabilities in the popular Checkpoint firewall, put out by Internet Security Systems last week, was inaccurate, a senior Checkpoint official says.

Scott Ferguson, Checkpoint regional director for Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, said the advice provided by ISS in its advisory was "not entirely accurate."

"One alleged flaw referred to a key exchange over private networks - this is referring to a three-year-old issue and the installed base has been upgraded a long time ago," Ferguson said.
