   Log Message:
   Security update to version 2.0.5.


   - Fixed bug in Linux get_default_gateway function
     introduced in 2.0.4, which would cause redirect-gateway
     on Linux clients to fail.
   - Restored easy-rsa/2.0 tree (backported from 2.1 beta
     series) which accidentally disappeared in
     2.0.2 -> 2.0.4 transition.

   - Security fix -- Affects non-Windows OpenVPN clients of
     version 2.0 or higher which connect to a malicious or
     compromised server.  A format string vulnerability
     in the foreign_option function in options.c could
     potentially allow a malicious or compromised server
     to execute arbitrary code on the client.  Only
     non-Windows clients are affected.  The vulnerability
     only exists if (a) the client's TLS negotiation with
     the server succeeds, (b) the server is malicious or
     has been compromised such that it is configured to
     push a maliciously crafted options string to the client,
     and (c) the client indicates its willingness to accept
     pushed options from the server by having "pull" or
     "client" in its configuration file (Credit: Vade79).
   - Security fix -- Potential DoS vulnerability on the
     server in TCP mode.  If the TCP server accept() call
     returns an error status, the resulting exception handler
     may attempt to indirect through a NULL pointer, causing
     a segfault.  Affects all OpenVPN 2.0 versions.
   - Fix attempt of assertion at multi.c:1586 (note that
     this precise line number will vary across different
     versions of OpenVPN).
   - Added ".PHONY: plugin" to to work around
     "make dist" issue.
   - Fixed double fork issue that occurs when --management-hold
     is used.
   - Moved TUN/TAP read/write log messages from --verb 8 to 6.
   - Warn when multiple clients having the same common name or
     username usurp each other when --duplicate-cn is not used.
   - Modified Windows and Linux versions of get_default_gateway
     to return the route with the smallest metric
     if multiple entries are present.

   - openvpn_plugin_abort_v1 function wasn't being properly
     registered on Windows.
   - Fixed a bug where --mode server --proto tcp-server --cipher none
     operation could cause tunnel packet truncation.
