Subject: [Security Announce] dhcp update

   Linux-Mandrake Security Update


Date: July, 2nd 2000

Package name: dhcp

Affected versions: 6.0 6.1 7.0 7.1

The OpenBSD team discovered a vulnerability in it that allows for
remote exploitation by a corrupt dhcp server, (or an attacker
pretending to be a dhcp server). If this vulnerability is exploited,
root access can be gained on the host running dhcp client remotely.
The problem is that input is not checked and, as a result, it is
possible to execute commands remotely when the network config files
are being written on the dhcp client.

Please upgrade to:

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate . If you want to
upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP
server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name". All mirrors
are listed on http://www.mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3 Updated packages are
available in the "updates/" directory.

For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake 7.1, look for it in: updates/7.1/RPMS/

- we give the md5 sum for each package. It lets you check the
integrity of the downloaded package by running the md5sum command on
the package ("md5sum package.rpm").
- you generally do not need to download the source package with a
.src.rpm suffix
