Fedora 14 : dhcp-4.2.0-23.P2.fc14 (2011-10705)

High Nessus Plugin ID 56096


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a pair of defects that could cause the server to halt upon processing certain packets.

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.
