Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2012-07-26 00:40:23 UTC
CVE-2012-3954 (
  Multiple memory leaks in ISC DHCP 4.1.x and 4.2.x before 4.2.4-P1 and
  4.1-ESV before 4.1-ESV-R6 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (memory consumption) by sending many requests.

CVE-2012-3571 (
  ISC DHCP 4.1.2 through 4.2.4 and 4.1-ESV before 4.1-ESV-R6 allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption)
  via a malformed client identifier.

CVE-2012-3570 (
  Buffer overflow in ISC DHCP 4.2.x before 4.2.4-P1, when DHCPv6 mode is
  enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation
  fault and daemon exit) via a crafted client identifier parameter.
