dhcpcd-8.0.6 released

13 Sep 2019 • 1 min read

With the following changes:

  • inet6: Fix default route not being installed
  • DHCP: If root fs is network mounted, enable last lease extend
  • man: Fix lint errors.
  • BSD: avoid RTF_WASCLONED routes
  • DHCP: Give a better message when packet validation fails
  • DHCP: Ensure we have enough data to checksum IP and UDP

The last change fixes a potential DoS attack introduced in dhcpcd-8.0.3 when the checksuming code was changed to accomodate variable length IP headers. The commit says since 7.2.0, but I've now decided that's not the case.
