    Package        : openvpn
    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1629
    BugTraq ID     : 17392
    Debian Bug     : 360559
    
    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.
