The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200908-08 (ISC DHCP: dhcpd Denial of Service)

Christoph Biedl discovered that dhcpd does not properly handle certain     DHCP requests when configured both using 'dhcp-client-identifier' and     'hardware ethernet'.

Impact :

A remote attacker might send a specially crafted request to dhcpd,     possibly resulting in a Denial of Service (daemon crash).

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
