Package name openvpn
Date November 8th, 2005
Advisory ID MDKSA-2005:206
Affected versions MNF2.0
Synopsis Updated openvpn packages fix multiple vulnerabilities

Problem Description

Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities exist in OpenVPN. The first
allows a malicious or compromised server to execute arbitrary code
on the client (CVE-2005-3393). The second DoS can occur if when in
TCP server mode, OpenVPN received an error on accept(2) and the
resulting exception handler causes a segfault (CVE-2005-3409).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
