    process requests which come from unexpected source addresses, leading
    to an assertion failure and a daemon crash.
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 4.1.1-P1-16.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your isc-dhcp packages.
