The remote DHCP server is affected by a denial of service
The ISC DHCP server running on the remote host is affected by a denial
of service vulnerability in the supersede_lease() function within file
memory.c due to improper handling of DHCPDISCOVER packets that have a
client-identifier option that is exactly 32 bytes long. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause the server
to exit unexpectedly.
