  <title>ISC DHCP: dhcpclient Remote execution of arbitrary code</title>
  <synopsis>
    A buffer overflow in dhclient as included in the ISC DHCP implementation
    allows for the remote execution of arbitrary code with root privileges.

    Configuration Protocol as specified in RFC 2131.

  <description>
    <p>
    The Mandriva Linux Engineering Team has reported a stack-based buffer
    overflow in the subnet-mask handling of dhclient.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="high">
    <p>
    A remote attacker might set up a rogue DHCP server in a victim's local
    network, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with root
    privileges.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All ISC DHCP users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-misc/dhcp-3.1.1-r1"</code>
