    Sebastian Krahmer and Marius Tomaschewski discovered that dhclient of
    isc-dhcp, a DHCP client, is not properly filtering shell meta-characters
    in certain options in DHCP server responses.  These options are reused in
    an insecure fashion by dhclient scripts.  This allows an attacker to execute
    arbitrary commands with the privileges of such a process by sending crafted
    DHCP options to a client using a rogue server.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    additional update for dhcp3.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.1-P1-16.1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your isc-dhcp packages.
