The decompress function in ncompress allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash), and possibly execute arbitrary code,
via crafted data that leads to a buffer underflow (CVE-2006-1168).

multiple DHCP clients. This flaw may allow DHCP server to trick DHCP
clients to set e.g. system hostname to a specially crafted value
