The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was discovered in the way the dhcpd
daemon parsed DHCPv6 packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
crash dhcpd via a specially-crafted DHCPv6 packet, if dhcpd was
running as a DHCPv6 server. (CVE-2010-3611)
After installing this update, all DHCP servers will be restarted
