Scientific Linux Security Update : dhcp on SL7.x x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 106339


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that the DHCP daemon did not properly clean up closed OMAPI connections in certain cases. A remote attacker able to connect to the OMAPI port could use this flaw to exhaust file descriptors in the DHCP daemon, leading to a denial of service in the OMAPI functionality. (CVE-2017-3144)


Update the affected packages.
