Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2012-115
Advisory Release Date: 2014-09-14 16:49 Pacific
A denial of service flaw was found in the way the dhcpd daemon handled zero-length client identifiers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially-crafted request to dhcpd, possibly causing it to enter an infinite loop and consume an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2012-3571 )
Two memory leak flaws were found in the dhcpd daemon. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause dhcpd to exhaust all available memory by sending a large number of DHCP requests. (CVE-2012-3954 )
Run yum update dhcp to update your system.
