Oh, after looking at the source a little and git's history it looks like we are
using OpenBSD's dhclient only in base now.

Are we completely up to date with dhclient in this case or is this issue
actually invaild?
I'm a little unsure now..

CVE-2011-0413 and CVE-2010-3616 concern DHCPDv6 and DHCPD, resp., which DragonFly
doesn't have.

#3 Updated by gilles over 5 years ago

Asked fellow hackers and dhclient in OpenBSD-current is not affected

#4 Updated by eocallaghan over 5 years ago

Thanks for that, appreciate it!

Also, does this mean we are also in sync with the latest changes from OpenBSD?
I am told from one of my friends that his machine sometimes needs to be
restarted before it can find a route to host via DHCP, i.e. a default router.
Have not been able to get more techincal details from him yet however.

Kind Regards,
