openSUSE Security Update : dhcp (openSUSE-SU-2013:0619-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 74959


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The ISC dhcp server was updated to fix a denial of service attack via regular expressions :

- Removed regex.h check from configure in bind sources (bnc#811934, CVE-2013-2266). Make the bind export library build output visible.

Also fixed :

- Added dhcp6-server service template for SuSEfirewall2 (bnc#783002)
