Name        : dhcp
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 4.1.0p1
Release     : 4.fc11
URL         : http://isc.org/products/DHCP/
Summary     : Dynamic host configuration protocol software
Description :
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network
configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address,
etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it
easier to administer a large network.  The dhcp package includes the
ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent),
and on clients run a DHCP client daemon.  The dhcp package provides
the ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

Update Information:

Do not require policycoreutils when installing dhcp or dhclient packages.  If
you have the package installed, the /sbin/restorecon program will be used by
dhclient-script and the dhcpd init script.    This update to the dhcp package
includes fixes for CVE-2009-0692 and CVE-2009-1892. More information on these
issues are available here:    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-
bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0692  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-
bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1892    Note: CVE-2009-0692 had no security
consequences on Fedora, thanks to the use of FORTIFY_SOURCE
