3. Description:

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. DHCPv6 is the DHCP protocol version for IPv6 networks.

A flaw was found in the way the dhcpd daemon processed certain DHCPv6
messages for addresses that had previously been declined and marked as
abandoned internally. If a remote attacker sent such messages to dhcpd, it
could cause dhcpd to crash due to an assertion failure if it was running as
a DHCPv6 server. (CVE-2011-0413)

Red Hat would like to thank Internet Systems Consortium for reporting this
issue.

Users running dhcpd as a DHCPv6 server should upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After
installing this update, all DHCP servers will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
