Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Updated package.
 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2005:206
 Package : openvpn
 Date    : November 8, 2005
 Affected: Multi Network Firewall 2.0
 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.

 Updated Packages:
 Multi Network Firewall 2.0:
 6d05d03341ef7c99bd0c044ac14383c7  mnf/2.0/RPMS/openvpn-2.0.1-0.2.M20mdk.i586.rpm
 8882e7500e1fb8a255f5f50885042608  mnf/2.0/SRPMS/openvpn-2.0.1-0.2.M20mdk.src.rpm

 To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.  The verification
 of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.

 All packages are signed by Mandriva for security.  You can obtain the
 GPG public key of the Mandriva Security Team by executing:

  gpg --recv-keys --keyserver 0x22458A98
