Hi All,

A malformed dhcp discover packet can cause dnsmasq to be unresponsive for a 
small amount of time.  If this was repeated over time an attacker could make 
the dhcp service unresponsive DOSing the box.

Does dnsmasq validate the incoming DHCP packet? We are using v2.78. Are there 
any fixes related to handling malformed DHCP packet?
