Package        : dhcpcd
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-6698 CVE-2012-6699 CVE-2012-6700

Guido Vranken discovered several vulnerabilities in dhcpcd, a DHCP
client, which may result in denial of service.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
in version 1:3.2.3-11+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dhcpcd packages.
