isc-dhcp regression
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 21.04

Summary:

USN-4969-1 introduced a regression in DHCP.

Software Description:
– isc-dhcp: DHCP server and client

Details:

USN-4969-1 fixed a vulnerability in DHCP. The package for Ubuntu 21.04
introduced a regression causing it to reject certain valid configuration
files. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

Jon Franklin and Pawel Wieczorkiewicz discovered that DHCP incorrectly
handled lease file parsing. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to cause DHCP to crash, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 21.04:
isc-dhcp-client 4.4.1-2.2ubuntu6.2
isc-dhcp-server 4.4.1-2.2ubuntu6.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
