Can you point us to the exact version and location in code where
the vulnerability is?

I've not previously looked at the code more closely to find the exact
spot to be fixed.  However, I have successfully reproduced the issue
with busybox 1.15.1 at least, not sure if I looked at any older
version too.  It should be trivial to reproduce by running udhcpc -s
<script>, where script just dumps whole env.  You should see
server-provided options exported (hostname, domain).

I remember to have checked udhcpc at that time and neither I found it
setting a hostname or parsing the options for a hostname.

Looks like fill_envp is the place:

The logic was little different in older versions:

When I talked to upstream, they did see the issue and opened the bug:
