Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

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.

Update :

Packages are now available for Mandriva Linux 2006.

Solution :

Update the affected openvpn package.
