According to its self-reported version number, the version of OpenVPN client installed on the remote Windows host is 2.0.x prior to 2.0.6. It is, therefore, affected by a remote command execution vulnerability. An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this by deploying a malicious OpenVPN server and executing code on clients
