Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in OpenVPN could lead to Denial of Service.

Background
==========

OpenVPN is a multi-platform, full-featured SSL VPN solution.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

OpenVPN does not properly handle control channel packets that are too
small.

Impact

A remote authenticated attacker could send a specially crafted control
channel packet, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All OpenVPN users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
