|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: ISC DHCP: Denial of Service (GLSA 200808-05)
Date: August 06, 2008
A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in ISC DHCP.
ISC DHCP is ISC's reference implementation of all aspects of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.
Vulnerable: < 3.1.1
Unaffected: >= 3.1.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A buffer overflow error was found in ISC DHCP server, that can only be exploited under unusual server configurations where the DHCP server is configured to provide clients with a large set of DHCP options.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ISC DHCP users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/dhcp-3.1.1"
