Windows installer signatured with wrong private key?

Component: Packaging Version:
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


The WINDOWS INSTALLER file [0] looks like signed by an unknown key instead of being signed with the "Security mailing list GPG key" as stated in the "GnuPG Public Key" page [2].

The current key signed the file is using RSA key 82175D35AA8D0E8BDE5F4F9E5DC351805ACFEAC6 which does not match the "Security mailing list GPG key". Please check if this is a mistake or a security exploit.

The security key gets rotated yearly (new subkey added). The page was forgotten to update. The gpg on the contact page (https://openvpn.net/contact/) is already updated. That page should be updated soon.
