Slackware New dhcp packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  dhcp (SSA:2013-086-02)

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


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/dhcp-4.2.5_P1-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update replaces the included BIND 9 code that the DHCP programs
  link against.  Those contained a defect that could possibly lead to
  excessive memory consumption and a denial of service.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-2266
  (* Security fix *)
