    Some important information to our "oVPN Client for Windows" Users!
    Our 'oVPN Client for Windows' has hardcoded hashs to verify Binaries and DLLs + CodeSigning fingerprints to verify new openVPN releases.
    Fine, but Cert used by 'openVPN Developers' to CodeSign openVPN Setup, .EXE and .DLLs expired about 2 weeks ago!
    If any new release of openVPN (2.3.12-I602 or 2.3.13) comes out, we and you have to update 'oVPN Client' first!
    New oVPN Client will then automatically verify and upgrade your openVPN to latest release!
    We are still waiting for the new CodeSign fingerprint(s) to update our oVPN Client...
    Don't panic. Stay tuned.
