Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA219] DSA-219-1 dhcpcd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-219-1 dhcpcd

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Simon Kelly discovered a vulnerability in dhcpcd, an RFC2131 and
RFC1541 compliant DHCP client daemon, that runs with root rights
on client machines. A malicious administrator of the regular or an
untrusted DHCP server may execute any command with root rights on
the DHCP client machine by sending the command enclosed in shell
metacharacters in one of the options provided by the DHCP server.
This problem has been fixed in version 1.3.17pl2-8.1 for the old
stable distribution (potato) and in version 1.3.22pl2-2 for the
testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distributions. The current stable
distribution (woody) does not contain a dhcpcd package.
We recommend that you upgrade your dhcpcd package (on the client
machine).
