SuSE 11.1 Security Update : dhcp (SAT Patch Number 6671)

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

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update of dhcp fixes two security vulnerabilities :

- Malformed client identifiers could cause a Denial of
Service (excessive CPU consumption), effectively causing
further client requests to not be processed anymore.

- Two unspecified memory leaks. (CVE-2012-3954)
Additionally, the following issues were fixed :

- The init script of dhcp-server was fixed to check syntax
and fail on force-reload and restart to avoid stopping
of running daemon followed by start failure

- Added to chroot, so the server can report an
assert/crash line.
