Package : dhcpcd Vulnerability : remote stack overflow Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-2152 Debian Bug : #671265

It was discovered that dhcpcd, a DHCP client, was vulnerable to a stack overflow. A malformed DHCP message could crash the client, causing a denial of service, and potentially remote code execution through properly designed malicous DHCP packets.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.2.3-5+squeeze1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.2.3-11.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.2.3-11.

We recommend that you upgrade your dhcpcd package.
