    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the ISC DHCP client,
    relay and server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2017-3144
    
        It was discovered that the DHCP server does not properly clean up
        closed OMAPI connections, which can lead to exhaustion of the pool
        of socket descriptors available to the DHCP server, resulting in
        denial of service.
    
    CVE-2018-5732
    
        Felix Wilhelm of the Google Security Team discovered that the DHCP
        client is prone to an out-of-bound memory access vulnerability when
        processing specially constructed DHCP options responses, resulting
        in potential execution of arbitrary code by a malicious DHCP server.
    
    CVE-2018-5733
    
        Felix Wilhelm of the Google Security Team discovered that the DHCP
        server does not properly handle reference counting when processing
        client requests. A malicious client can take advantage of this flaw
        to cause a denial of service (dhcpd crash) by sending large amounts
        of traffic.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 4.3.1-6+deb8u3.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.3.5-3+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your isc-dhcp packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of isc-dhcp please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
