This module performs a Denial of Service Attack against the ISC DHCP server, versions 4.1 before 4.1.1-P1 and 4.0 before 4.0.2-P1. It sends out a DHCP Request message with a 0-length client_id option for an IP address on the appropriate range for the dhcp server. When ISC DHCP Server tries to hash this value it exits abnormally.
To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':
Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
