    VPN security flaw CVE-2019-14899

    Hi,

    Does anyone know, as far as i understand this flaw is only achieved by someone on your own local network? so if you are a home user you are safe?

    Is there a work around?

    thx

    Yes, the attacker must have access to the router so the best one can do to prevent an attack is to make sure that the router software is updated.

    The VPN connection itself is not affected by the bug.
