Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-09-16 13:37:43 UTC
OpenVPN's use of Netfilter makes it susceptible to several attacks that can cause denial-of-service, deanonymization of clients, or redirection of a victim client connection to an attacker controlled server.

Comment 7 Wade Mealing 2022-03-04 04:56:07 UTC
I wont be argueing the rescore, complexit is high, because the argued example is not in most openvpn nat scenarios, and even then you wont get I:H, because you can't modify anything..  Dunno what to say.
