Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.70068
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1160
Summary:Redhat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1160
Description:The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1160.

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.

Two denial of service flaws were found in the way the dhcpd daemon handled
certain incomplete request packets. A remote attacker could use these flaws
to crash dhcpd via a specially-crafted request. (CVE-2011-2748,
CVE-2011-2749)

Users of DHCP should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct these issues. After installing this update, all
DHCP servers will be restarted automatically.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
