This module exploits a vulnerability in DHCP Server in OpenBSD. The vulnerability is caused due to the improper handling of DHCP requests within dhcpd in the cons_options() function in options.c. This cause a stack-based buffer corruption by sending a specially crafted DHCP request specifying a maximum message size smaller than 278. This module, if successfull, will leave the service (dhcpd) unavailable.
