The OpenVPN project reports:

In late November 2014 Dragana Damjanovic notified OpenVPN developers of a critical denial of service security vulnerability (CVE-2014-8104). The vulnerability allows an tls-authenticated client to crash the server by sending a too-short control channel packet to the server. In other words this vulnerability is denial of service only.
