|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: OpenVPN: Denial of Service (GLSA 201412-41)
Date: December 26, 2014
A vulnerability in OpenVPN could lead to Denial of Service.
OpenVPN is a multi-platform, full-featured SSL VPN solution.
Vulnerable: < 2.3.6
Unaffected: >= 2.3.6
Architectures: All supported architectures
OpenVPN does not properly handle control channel packets that are too
A remote authenticated attacker could send a specially crafted control
channel packet, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenVPN users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/openvpn-2.3.6"
