CVE-2012-2248

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in dhclient 4.3.1-6 due to an embedded path
variable.
Notes
mdeslaurIn Ubuntu, the build directory is set to
PATH=/build/buildd/isc-dhcp-4.2.4/debian/tmp/usr/sbin.
since it is a top-level directory, the attacker would need to
be root to exploit this. Also, USN-1571-1 sets an explicit
PATH in dhclient-script, so it's likely we're not vulnerable at
all.
