|Bugzilla:||856766: CVE-2012-3955 dhcp: reduced expiration time of an IPv6 lease may cause dhcpd to crash|
A flaw was found in the way the dhcpd daemon handled the expiration time of IPv6 leases. If dhcpd's configuration was changed to reduce the default IPv6 lease time, lease renewal requests for previously assigned leases could cause dhcpd to crash.
This issue does not affect the version of dhcp as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
