New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdate to latest upstream OpenVPN 2.4.9 release. It contains a security fix for CVE-2020-11810.
This security issue is quite hard to abuse, requiring a fairly precise timing attack combined with guessing a just assigned peer-id reference. If successful, only a single client just initiating a new connection will experience a denial of service situation. This wi why the severity is rated low.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected openvpn package.
