openSUSE Security Update : dhcpcd (openSUSE-SU-2011:0352-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 75816
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA rogue dhcp server could instruct clients to use a host name that contains shell meta characters. Since many scripts in the system do not expect unusal characters in the system's host name the dhcp client needs to sanitize the host name offered by the server (CVE-2011-0996).
This update also fixes packet handling with xen partial UDP checksums.
SolutionUpdate the affected dhcpcd packages.
