Hendrik Weimer discovered that OpenVPN, the Virtual Private Network
daemon, allows to push environment variables to a client allowing a
malicious VPN server to take over connected clients.

the old stable distribution (woody) does not contain openvpn packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0-1sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openvpn package.
