Description William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2014-07-30 18:42:42 UTC
Arch teams:

I will stable this on amd64, but we need it stabled everywhere else
asap. The issue is that Roy advised me that there is a DoS attack vector
in dhcpcd versions from 4.0.0 to 6.4.2 which is fixed in 6.4.3 by this
patch [1].

CVE-2014-6060 (
  The get_option function in dhcpcd 4.0.0 through 6.x before 6.4.3 allows
  remote DHCP servers to cause a denial of service by resetting the
  DHO_OPTIONSOVERLOADED option in the (1) bootfile or (2) servername section,
  which triggers the option to be processed again.
