Package : systemd
Type    : denial of service
Remote  : Yes
Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1935

Summary
=======

The package systemd before version 249-2 is vulnerable to denial of
service.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 249-2.

# pacman -Syu "systemd>=249-2"

The problem has been fixed upstream in version 249.

Workaround
==========

None.

Description
===========

An exploitable denial-of-service vulnerability exists in systemd-
networkd before version 249. A maliciously crafted DHCP FORCERENEW
packet can cause a server running the DHCP client to be vulnerable to a
DHCP ACK spoofing attack. An attacker can forge a pair of FORCERENEW
and DCHP ACK packets to reconfigure the server.

Impact
======

A network-adjacent attacker could reconfigure the networking properties
of a device running systemd-networkd through crafted DHCP packets.
