OpenVPN 2.2.2 May 2013?

edited July 2 in Software and System Updates Posts: 17
I just checked the latest v71 version on my Win10 x64 Pro PC:
C:/Program Files/pia_manager/openvpn.exe --version
OpenVPN 2.2.2
which on http://swupdate.openvpn.org/community/releases/
shows May 2013 (over 4 years old)?

Doesn't this present some security risks, e.g., since a lot of regular updates are concerned with security fixes?  If not, why not?

The current OVPN version is 2.4.3.

    Hi @ingber,

    We keep our own fork of OpenVPN based on 2.2.2 and backport all security fixes, including the ones from more recent audits, such as the audit of OpenVPN 2.4 completed in April. We plan to roll out OpenVPN 2.4 in a future update.

    Thanks for this reply. I knew PIA was a sponsor of that audit, so I couldn't understand their version number.

    I hope the update will move down the pipeline soon.

    "soon" is apparently not a word PIA is familiar with.

    Hopefully they will roll the OpenVPN 2.4 update out with the release of v.73
