Debian Security Advisory DSA 885-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : openvpn
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3393 CVE-2005-3409
CERT advisory  : 
BugTraq ID     : 15239
Debian Bug     : 336751 337334

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 allow
    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
version 2.0-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openvpn package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
