    David Zych discovered that the ISC DHCP crashes when processing
    certain packets, leading to a denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.1-6+lenny6 of the dhcp3 package.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze3 of the isc-dhcp package.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ISC DHCP packages.
