Vulnerability  : design error
Problem type   : remote

BugTraq ID     : 17392
Debian Bug     : 360559

Hendrik Weimer discovered that OpenVPN, the Virtual Private Network
daemon, allows to push environment variables to a client allowing a
malicious VPN server to take over connected clients.

the old stable distribution (woody) does not contain openvpn packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0-1sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.6-1.

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

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