The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol 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. The Mandriva Linux Engineering Team discovered a stack-based buffer overflow flaw in the ISC DHCP client. If the DHCP client were to receive a malicious DHCP response, it could crash or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the client . Users of DHCP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
