SuSE 11.1 Security Update : dhcp (SAT Patch Number 6671)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 64123
The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
This update of dhcp fixes two security vulnerabilities : - Malformed client identifiers could cause a Denial of Service (excessive CPU consumption), effectively causing further client requests to not be processed anymore. (CVE-2012-3571) - Two unspecified memory leaks. (CVE-2012-3954) Additionally, the following issues were fixed : - The init script of dhcp-server was fixed to check syntax and fail on force-reload and restart to avoid stopping of running daemon followed by start failure - Added libgcc_s.so to chroot, so the server can report an assert/crash line.
