    Two security vulnerabilities affecting ISC dhcpd, a server for automatic
    IP address assignment, in Debian have been discovered.
    
    CVE-2012-3571
    
      Markus Hietava of the Codenomicon CROSS project discovered that it is
      possible to force the server to enter an infinite loop via messages with
      malformed client identifiers.
    
    CVE-2012-3954
    
      Glen Eustace discovered that DHCP servers running in DHCPv6 mode
      and possibly DHCPv4 mode suffer of memory leaks while processing messages.
      An attacker can use this flaw to exhaust resources and perform denial
      of service attacks.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze4.
    
    For the testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem
    will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your isc-dhcp packages.
