Advisories MDVSA-2011:001: dhcp

Recommended Posts

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in dhcp:


ISC DHCP server 4.2 before 4.2.0-P2, when configured to use failover

partnerships, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service

(communications-interrupted state and DHCP client service loss)

by connecting to a port that is only intended for a failover peer,

as demonstrated by a Nagios check_tcp process check to TCP port 520



The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
