Description :
OpenVPN is a robust and highly flexible tunneling application that uses all
of the encryption, authentication, and certification features of the
OpenSSL library to securely tunnel IP networks over a single UDP or TCP
port.  It can use the Marcus Franz Xaver Johannes Oberhumers LZO library

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This is an extended update of the OpenVPN 2.6.7 release which contains security
fixes for CVE-2023-46849 and CVE-2023-46850.  That release had a regression

release was pulled.  This 2.6.8 release contains a fix for the regression issue
as well.
