DHCP Format String Vulnerability - Mandrake Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2002:037

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           dhcp
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:037
Date:                   May 29th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.2, 8.1, 8.2, Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Fermin J. Serna discovered a problem in the dhcp server and client
 package from versions 3.0 to 3.0.1rc8, which are affected by a format
 string vulnerability that can be exploited remotely.  By default, these
 versions of DHCP are compiled with the dns update feature enabled,
 which allows DHCP to update DNS records.  The code that logs this
 update has an exploitable format string vulnerability; the update 
 message can contain data provided by the attacker, such as a hostname.
 A successful exploitation could give the attacker elevated privileges
 equivalent to the user running the DHCP daemon, which is the user dhcpd
 in Mandrake Linux 8.x, but root in earlier versions.
