Description

Markus Hietava discovered that the DHCP server incorrectly handled certain malformed client identifiers. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause DHCP to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2012-3571)

Glen Eustace discovered that the DHCP server incorrectly handled memory. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause DHCP to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2012-3954).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
