Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2005:603 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: dhcpcd security update 2005-07-27 04:00:00 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-29 02:20:43 UTC
Debian has notified vendor-sec of a security hole in dhcpcd: A malformed DHCP
packet can make the code read beyond the end of a buffer and therefore
potentially crash. There's no root execution exposure.
