OpenVPN updated for the CactusVPN Windows and macOS apps
Good news for all CactusVPN apps users! We are happy to introduce you to the newest version of our VPN apps for Windows and macOS.
This is one of the many things we have been working on in order to build the best ever experiences and offer the highest level of security for our users. The new improvement focuses on the update of the OpenVPN protocol to its latest 2.4.2 version. It’s worth mentioning that OpenVPN is the most secure VPN protocol and now you can benefit from it’s latest version using our Windows VPN app and macOS VPN app.
According to the OpenVPN press release, a recent audit performed by The Open Source Technology Improvement Fund, known as OSTIF, revealed a series of minor security vulnerabilities with the older versions of OpenVPN, which have been successfully fixed.
OpenVPN was audited for security vulnerabilities independently by Quarkslabs and Cryptography Engineering. The primary findings were two remote denial-of-service vulnerabilities that have been fixed in the new 2.4.2 version.
“OSTIF funded audits look for bugs, back doors, or other potential defects. The organization is a strong and independent advocate for free and open software that we are pleased to be part of. In our case, the audit effectively added yet another layer of security and confidence for the thousands of individuals, businesses and enterprises that use our OpenVPN software.”
