[slackware-security]  openvpn (SSA:2014-344-04)

New openvpn packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0,
14.1, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/openvpn-2.3.6-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue that allows remote authenticated
  users to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a small control
  channel packet.
  For more information, see:
