 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:167
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : openvpn
 Date    : May 27, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated openvpn package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 OpenVPN 2.3.0 and earlier running in UDP mode are subject to chosen
 ciphertext injection due to a non-constant-time HMAC comparison
 function. Plaintext recovery may be possible using a padding oracle
 attack on the CBC mode cipher implementation of the crypto library,
 optimistically at a rate of about one character per 3 hours. PolarSSL
 seems vulnerable to such an attack; the vulnerability of OpenSSL has
 not been verified or tested (CVE-2013-2061).
