ISC Support reports:

ISC Kea may terminate unexpectedly (crash) while handling a malformed client packet. Related defects in the kea-dhcp4 and kea-dhcp6 servers can cause the server to crash during option processing if a client sends a malformed packet. An attacker sending a crafted malformed packet can cause an ISC Kea server providing DHCP services to IPv4 or IPv6 clients to exit unexpectedly.
