Good find as im sure alot of people will be running this service!
This shouldnt affect me if i am running a DHCP client to obtain an IP address, should it?
Also RH7.3 is not mentioned but does mean that it isnt vulnerable, anyone?

You should be ok it doesent seem redhat 7.3 is affected by this r3b007
Red Hat Inc.
Red Hat distributes a vulnerable version of ISC DHCP in Red Hat Linux 8.0. Other distributions of Red Hat Linux are not vulnerable to these issues. New DHCP packages are available along with our advisory at the URL below. Users of the Red Hat Network can update their systems using the 'up2date' tool.
