Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenVPN, a free
virtual private network daemon. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:
A format string vulnerability has been discovered that could permit
arbitrary code to be executed on the client.
A NULL pointer dereferencing has been discovered that could be
exploited to crash the service.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain openvpn packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
