Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openvpn (MDVSA-2013:167)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

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).

Solution :

Update the affected openvpn package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.6
CVSS Temporal Score : 2.3
Public Exploit Available : false
