Description

Updated dhcp packages that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

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.

Two denial of service flaws were found in the way the dhcpd daemon handled certain incomplete request packets. A remote attacker could use these flaws to crash dhcpd via a specially crafted request. (CVE-2011-2748, CVE-2011-2749)

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