Red Hat: Updated dhcp packages fix one security issue

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol that allows individual devices on an IP network to get their own network configuration information. A denial of service flaw was found in the way the dhcpd daemon handled DHCP request packets when regular expression matching was used in “/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf”. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash dhcpd. Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.

3. Description:

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol that allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network configuration
information, including an IP address, a subnet mask, and a broadcast
address.

A denial of service flaw was found in the way the dhcpd daemon handled DHCP
request packets when regular expression matching was used in
"/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf". A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash
dhcpd. (CVE-2011-4539)

Users of DHCP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this update, all
DHCP servers will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
