MDKSA-2003:007 : dhcp

Several potential vulnerabilities were detected by the ISC (Internet Software Consortium) in their dhcp server software. The vulnerabilities affect the minires library and may be exploitable as stack buffer overflows, which could lead to remote code execution. All Mandrake Linux users are encouraged to upgrade; only Mandrake Linux 8.0 came with dhcp 2.x and is not vulnerable.
