mitm attack

Post by kandawan » Sun Aug 11, 2019 6:15 pm

Hi, I am running the latest version of openvpn on both the client and server side. Recently, I believe I was subject to a "man in the middle" attack while on travel. While they were able to connect to the network using the information they gleaned, they were not able to penetrate it as far as I can tell. I would like to share the log file and discuss few things that were surprising (at least to me) that they were able to do and how to mitigate that going forward. Is there a way to communicate in private?

Is this about OpenVPN or a hacked WiFi network?

@Kandawan you can contact me here: tincantech <at> gmail
Or, if you believe this is much more serious, you can contact security <at> openvpn.net

Or you can post your details here and obscure your private identity if you prefer.

I apologize. I figured out that it was a false alarm.
