[slackware-security]  dhcp (SSA:2012-258-01)

New dhcp packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/dhcp-4.2.4_P2-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  An issue with the use of lease times was found and fixed.  Making certain
  changes to the end time of an IPv6 lease could cause the server to abort.
  Thanks to Glen Eustace of Massey University, New Zealand for finding this
  issue.  [ISC-Bugs #30281]
