Critical Nessus Plugin ID 42454


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Do not require policycoreutils when installing dhcp or dhclient packages. If you have the package installed, the /sbin/restorecon program will be used by dhclient-script and the dhcpd init script.
This update to the dhcp package includes fixes for CVE-2009-0692 and CVE-2009-1892. More information on these issues are available here:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0692 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1892 Note:
CVE-2009-0692 had no security consequences on Fedora, thanks to the use of FORTIFY_SOURCE

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected dhcp package.
