SuSE 11.1 Security Update : dhcpv6 (SAT Patch Number 4317)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.

Description :

A rogue DHCP server could instruct clients to use a host name that
contains shell meta characters. Since many scripts in the system do
not expect unusal characters in the system's host name the DHCP client
needs to sanitize the host name offered by the server. (CVE-2011-0997)
