High Nessus Plugin ID 99827
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the dhcp packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- ISC DHCP 4.1.x before 4.1-ESV-R13 and 4.2.x and 4.3.x before 4.3.4 does not restrict the number of concurrent TCP sessions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (INSIST assertion failure or request-processing outage) by establishing many sessions.(CVE-2016-2774)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected dhcp package.
