openSUSE-SU-2013:0625-1: moderate: dhcp: fixed remote denial of service attack
openSUSE Security Update: dhcp: fixed remote denial of service attack

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2013:0625-1
Rating: moderate
References: #783002 #784640 #788787 #791280 #791289 #794578
Cross-References: CVE-2013-2266
Affected Products:
openSUSE 11.4

An update that solves one vulnerability and has 6 fixes is
now available.


The ISC dhcp server was updated to fix a denial of service
attack via regular expressions:
- Removed regex.h check from configure in bind sources
(bnc#811934,CVE-2013-2266). Make the bind export library
build output visible.

Also fixed:
- Added dhcp6-server service template for SuSEfirewall2
- Applied a patch to ignore SIGPIPE instead to die in
socket code before the errno==EPIPE checks are reached
(bnc#794578, upstream report [ISC-Bugs #32222])
- Applied several obvious memleak and segfault fixes from
4.2.5rc1 and a correction of code to calculate timing
values in dhcpv6 client to compare rebind value to
infinity instead of renew(bnc#794578).
- Fixed discovery of interfaces, which have only addresses
with a label assigned (linux 2.0 "alias interfaces"
compatibility) by switching to use the getifaddrs() as on
BSD (bnc#791289, reported upstream as [ISC-Bugs #31992]).
- Fixed parse buffer handling code to not avoid truncation
of config > ~8k from bigger ldap objects. Fixed to free
the ldap config buffer passed to the config parser and
append new config, while the parser is in saved state
- Fixed subclass name-ref and data quoting/escaping
- Fixed memory leaks on ldap_read_config errors
- Fixed dhclient-script to discard MTU lower-equal 576
rather than lower-than (bnc#791280).
- dhcp-ldap: fixed a memleak while subnet range processing,
fixed to reset bufix variable in ldap_read_function to 0
and to set buflen to the complete length (do not discard
last character, usually \n). This caused a parsing error
at further run of the function, e.g. while processing the
second dhcpService container that the dhcpServer
objectmay refer to (bnc#784640).
