According to the firmware version collected via SNMP, the copy of
dhclient-script included with the remote Apple Time Capsule / AirPort
Express Base Station / AirPort Extreme Base Station reportedly fails
to strip shell meta-characters in a hostname obtained from a DHCP
response. A remote attacker might be able to leverage this
vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the affected device.
