high Nessus Plugin ID 107223


The DHCP server installed on the remote Linux host is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability and a potential DoS.


The DHCP server version installed on the remote host is 4.1.0 to 4.1-ESV-R15, or 4.2.0 to 4.2.8, or 4.3.0 to 4.3.6, or 4.4.0.
It is, therefore, vulnerable to a denial of service condition with in the omapi_connection_writer() function of the omapip/buffer.c script due to improper handling of an empty message. A local attacker could potentially exhaust the available descriptors.


Please refer to the vendor's advisory.
