The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for dhcp fixes the following issues :
Security issue fixed :
- CVE-2016-2774: Fixed a denial of service attack against
the DHCP server over the OMAPI TCP socket, which could
be used by network adjacent attackers to make the DHCP
server non-functional (bsc#969820).
Non security issues fixed :
- Rename freeaddrinfo(), getaddrinfo() and getnameinfo()
in the internal libirs library that does not consider
/etc/hosts and /etc/nsswitch.conf to use irs_ prefix.
This prevents name conflicts which would result in
overriding standard glibc functions used by libldap.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
