The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
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-2011-0996)
