I understand that the vulnerability is exploitable if a client is compromised (certificate stolen). In such a case (client compromised), the risk is greater as confidentiality is breached. Nicolas -----Message d'origine----- De : David White [mailto:dmwhite823@...il.com] Envoyé : mercredi 3 décembre 2014 10:24 À : oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Objet : [oss-security] CVE-2014-8104 - Critical OpenVPN DoS Vulnerability I saw an email come through the pfSense list yesterday, but haven't seen anything about it discussed here. So I'm bringing it to this list's attention. https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/SecurityAnnouncement-97597e732b [ As a side note, I mistakenly thought the OP on the pfSense list mistakenly posted his link to a forum post on OpenVPN that was written in 2010, when in fact, that user had joined in 2010 but posted to the pfSense forum recently - https://forums.openvpn.net/topic17625.html ] -- David
