Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:206-1: openvpn

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openvpn package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:206-1 (openvpn).



Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities exist in OpenVPN. The first permits 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.

Update:

Packages are now available for Mandriva Linux 2006.
