 Subject:  mono wall 1.11 susceptible to dhcp dos attack
 Date:  Wed, 14 Sep 2005 09:40:14 -0500
If to many dhcp leases are requested quickly, monowall will write the
leases with out checking for a duplicate lease in the system. Till it
fills its memory and cannot commit new leases. Thus no longer handing
out dhcp leases creates a denial of serice (dos attack). Does anyone
know if this is resolved in the new releases?? or where it comits the
leases to, ram or hard drive
