openSUSE Security Update : dhcp (openSUSE-2018-207)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106998

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for dhcp fixes several issues.

This security issue was fixed :

- CVE-2017-3144: OMAPI code didn't free socket descriptors when empty message is received allowing DoS (bsc#1076119).

These non-security issues were fixed :

- Optimized if and when DNS client context and ports are initted (bsc#1073935)

- Relax permission of dhclient-script for libguestfs (bsc#987170)

- Modify dhclient-script to handle static route updates (bsc#1023415).

- Use only the 12 least significant bits of an inbound packet's TCI value as the VLAN ID to fix some packages being wrongly discarded by the Linux packet filter.
(bsc#1059061)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP1:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected dhcp packages.
