Description (partial)

On the ASA 5500-X platform the second highest port will send out a DHCP Discover request during the pre-boot process from IPMI.  If a DHCP server responds, the ASA will 
obtain the offered IP, but it will not be visible in the running configuration.  However, users able to connect to this IP address can potentially shutdown the device or cause it to 
reload. An attacker needs to be layer-2 adjacent to the device in order to hijack the DHCP request.
