Description Antonio Quartulli 2021-04-28 12:28:22 UTC
As explained in the reported URL, there is a CVE for a bug found in the latest release of OpenVPN. Both 2.4.x and 2.5.x series are affected.
The bug is fixed in 2.4.11 and 2.5.2.


It would be nice to bump the version in portage to allow users to installed the fixed version.

Reproducible: Always
