Default DHCP client allows shell command injection

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...n-1222805.html

Quote:
The Internet System Consortium's (ISC) open source DHCP client (dhclient) allows DHCP servers to inject commands which could allow an attacker to obtain root privileges. The problem is caused by incorrect filtering of metadata in server response fields. By using crafted host names, and depending on the operating system and what further processing is performed by dhclient-script, it can allow commands to be passed to the shell and executed. A successful attack does, however, require there to be an unauthorised or compromised DHCP server on the local network.
