Fixes for [ISC-Bugs #21152] and [ISC-Bugs #21253]

ISC DHCP 4.1.1-P1 is a patch release of ISC DHCP 4.1.1,
which contains a pair of bug fixes including
one for a security related bug.

- A bug was fixed that could cause the DHCPv6 server to advertise/assign a
  previously allocated (active) lease to a client that has changed subnets,
  despite being on different shared networks.  Dynamic prefixes specifically
  allocated in shared networks also now are not offered if the client has
  moved.  [ISC-Bugs #21152]

! Accept a client id of length 0 while hashing.  Previously the server would
  exit if it attempted to hash a zero length client id, providing attackers
  with a simple denial of service attack.  [ISC-Bugs #21253]

Comment 2 Jiri Popelka 2010-06-02 13:50:03 EDT
I'm not sure how to reproduce those two bugs.
I was unsuccessful in configuring client to send zero length client ID ([ISC-Bugs #21253]).
send dhcp-client-identifier "";
or something similar into dhclient.conf doesn't work.
