Description Adam Mariš 2017-07-07 07:50:54 EDT
When decoding "string" options in an array, dhcp_attr2vp() could be convinced to call memchr() with a length argument of -1. This could result in an over-read until the first zero octet was found, or a page fault occured.

The security impact is denial of service by any network device capable of sending DHCP packets to FreeRADIUS, which sends string options to the server in an option array.

Affected versions: 3.0.0 through 3.0.14, inclusive.
