Permissions on files from generated config

Recommended Posts

Guest voila

I started using AirVPN just recently.

I downloaded a .tar archive for OpenVPN from the website and there are 2 problems with it:


1. All files inside have rwxrwxrwx permissions (.ovpn, ca.crt, user.crt, user.key). Since I downloaded a tar, not zip, it should be possible to prevent that. 

2. The instructions on the website do not tell you to change permissions, they only tell to unpack the archive and launch "sudo openvpn <filename.ovpn>".


Many users might overlook the problem.
