Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0923 :

Updated dhcp packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link 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. DHCPv6 is the DHCP protocol version for IPv6 networks.

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was discovered in the way the dhcpd daemon parsed DHCPv6 packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash dhcpd via a specially crafted DHCPv6 packet, if dhcpd was running as a DHCPv6 server. (CVE-2010-3611)

Users running dhcpd as a DHCPv6 server 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.
