We found this one year ago. Although most versions have been patched we
haven't seen any public info on this yet.
FORTICLIENT VPN CLIENT CREDENTIAL INTERCEPTION VULNERABILITY
The Fortinet FortiClient VPN client on all available platforms suffers
from a certificate validation vulnerability which allows an attacker
to successfully run a man-in-the-middle attack and to steal the
credentials of the user.
When the FortiClient VPN client is tricked into connecting to a proxy
server rather than to the original firewall (e.g. through ARP or DNS
spoofing,) it detects the wrong SSL certificate but it only warns the
user _AFTER_ it has already sent the password to the proxy.
Critical. User can not prevent interception. Intercepted credentials
give full access to VPN.
