                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           openvpn
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:145
 Date:                   August 22nd, 2005

 Affected versions:  Multi Network Firewall 2.0
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenVPN that were fixed
 in the 2.0.1 release:
 
 A DoS attack against the server when run with "verb 0" and without
 "tls-auth" when a client connection to the server fails certificate
 verification, the OpenSSL error queue is not properly flushed.  This
 could result in another unrelated client instance on the server seeing
 the error and responding to it, resulting in a disconnection of the
 unrelated client (CAN-2005-2531).
 
 A DoS attack against the server by an authenticated client that sends
 a packet which fails to decrypt on the server, the OpenSSL error queue
 was not properly flushed.  This could result in another unrelated
 client instance on the server seeing the error and responding to it,
 resulting in a disconnection of the unrelated client (CAN-2005-2532).
 
 A DoS attack against the server by an authenticated client is possible
 in "dev tap" ethernet bridging mode where a malicious client could
 theoretically flood the server with packets appearing to come from
 hundreds of thousands of different MAC addresses, resulting in the
 OpenVPN process exhausting system virtual memory (CAN-2005-2533).
 
 If two or more client machines tried to connect to the server at the
 same time via TCP, using the same client certificate, a race condition
 could crash the server if --duplicate-cn is not enabled on the server
 (CAN-2005-2534).
 
 This update provides OpenVPN 2.0.1 which corrects these issues as well
 as a number of other bugs.
