Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : dhcp (MDVSA-2012:153-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 62402
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA security issue was identified and fixed in dhcp :
ISC DHCP 4.1.x before 4.1-ESV-R7 and 4.2.x before 4.2.4-P2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) in opportunistic circumstances by establishing an IPv6 lease in an environment where the lease expiration time is later reduced (CVE-2012-3955).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
