Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : dhcp (MDKSA-2000:022-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 61820
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAll versions of the ISC DHCP client program, dhclient, are vulnerable to a root attack by a corrupt DHCP server. This version fixes the vulnerability. Versions of Linux Mandrake prior to 7.0, while including the ISC DHCP server, do not include the DHCP client and are therefore not subject to this vulnerability.
There was a problem with the post installation script for the updated packages. Please use the following packages instead.
SolutionUpdate the affected dhcp, dhcp-client and / or dhcp-relay packages.
