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.

It was discovered that the DHCP client daemon, dhclient, did not
sufficiently sanitize certain options provided in DHCP server replies, such
as the client hostname. A malicious DHCP server could send such an option
with a specially-crafted value to a DHCP client. If this option's value was
saved on the client system, and then later insecurely evaluated by a
process that assumes the option is trusted, it could lead to arbitrary code
execution with the privileges of that process. (CVE-2011-0997)

Red Hat would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE Security Team for
reporting this issue.

All dhclient users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue.

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
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
