User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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.
