    Package: dhcp-client-beta (dhcp-client)
    Vulnerability type: remote root exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    The versions of the ISC DHCP client in debian 2.1 (slink) and debian 2.2
    (potato) are vulnerable to a root exploit. The OpenBSD team reports that the
    client inappropriately executes commands embedded in replies sent from a dhcp
    server. This means that a malicious dhcp server can execute commands on the
    client with root privilages. 
    The reported vulnerability is fixed in the package dhcp-client-beta
    2.0b1pl6-0.3 for the current stable release (debian 2.1) and in dhcp-client
    2.0-3potato1 for the frozen pre-release (debian 2.2). The dhcp server and relay
    agents are built from the same source as the client; however, the server and
    relay agents are not vulnerable to this issue and do not need to be upgraded.
    We recommend upgrading your dhcp-client-beta and dhcp-client immediately.
