Fedora 14 : dhcp-4.2.0-19.P2.fc14 (2011-0862)
High Nessus Plugin ID 51842
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA flaw was discovered in the way the dhcpd daemon processed a message for an address that had been previously declined and internally tagged as abandoned. Processing such a message could trigger an assert failure that could crash dhcpd if it was running as a DHCPv6 server.
DHCPv4 servers are unaffected. (CVE-2011-0413)
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected dhcp package.
