Another type of network attack which is targeted to DHCP servers is known as DHCP starvation attack.In a DHCP starvation attack,an attacker broadcasts large number of DHCP REQUEST messages with spoofed source MAC addresses.If the legitimate DHCP Server in the network start responding to all these bogus DHCP REQUESTmessages,available IP Addresses in the DHCP server scope will be depleted within a very short span of time.
