Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201309-21 (klibc: Command Injection)

The ipconfig utility in klibc writes DHCP options to       /tmp/net-$DEVICE.conf, and this file is later sourced by other scripts to       get defined variables. The options written to this file are not properly       escaped.

Impact :

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted DHCP reply, which could       execute arbitrary shell code with the privileges of any process which       sources DHCP options.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
