This update brings in the latest OpenVPN v2.4.2 release. This release contains fixes for two authenticated remote DoS vulnerabilities (CVE-2017-7478 and CVE-2017-7479). For more information see the upstream security announcement.
This build also switches back to OpenSSL 1.0, using compat-openssl10 and compat-openssl10-pkcs11-helper. This is temporarily until full OpenSSL 1.1 support have arrived OpenVPN. This should also resolve a lot of issues with features missing or not working properly with mbed TLS.
