Flaws patched in OpenVPN

Antony Savvas

Developers of the open-source OpenVPN project have patched four security flaws in its code that could allow malicious hackers to cause remote denial of service attacks.

OpenVPN allows network peers to authenticate to each other using private keys, certificates or username and passwords.

The free package has been upgraded to version 2.0.1 to include the new security patches.

OpenVPN uses the OpenSSL encryption library and the SSLv3/TLSv1 protocol.
