You may have heard of Friday’s announcement (April 11th 2019) from the United States Department of Homeland Security, warning of a security bug in several of the leading enterprise virtual private network security applications.

Not exactly the same, but there may be similar problem.
Session keys are stored in the VPN Server log, so anyone who can access the VPN server log can hijack the session.
