rPath Security Advisory: 2009-0041-1
Published: 2009-03-12
    rPath Linux 1
    rPath Linux 2

Rating: Critical
Exposure Level Classification:
    Remote Root Deterministic Denial of Service
Updated Versions: 

rPath Issue Tracking System:


    Previous versions of the ISC DHCP server were vulnerable to denial
    of service or arbitrary code execution attacks via malformed DHCP
    packets with a large dhcp-max-message-size that trigger a
    stack-based buffer overflow.
    Note that rPath Linux 2 is susceptible only to a Denial of Service
    in this case, due to the stack protector feature enabled as part of
    rPath Linux 2.
