Slackware New dhcp packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix a security issue with dhclient. Note that dhclient is not the default DHCP client in Slackware's networking scripts, dhcpcd is. However, if you use dhclient on a network where someone could deploy a hostile DHCP server, you should upgrade to the new package. More details about this issue may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0692
[slackware-security]  dhcp (SSA:2009-195-01)

New dhcp packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix a security issue with dhclient.

Note that dhclient is not the default DHCP client in Slackware's networking
scripts, dhcpcd is.  However, if you use dhclient on a network where someone
could deploy a hostile DHCP server, you should upgrade to the new package.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0692


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/dhcp-3.1.2p1-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
  A stack overflow vulnerability was fixed in dhclient that could allow
  remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands as root on the system,
  or simply terminate the client, by providing an over-long subnet-mask
  option.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0692
  (* Security fix *)

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
