Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2005-561: net-snmp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the net-snmp package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-561 (net-snmp).

SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a protocol used for
network management. The NET-SNMP project includes various SNMP tools:
an extensible agent, an SNMP library, tools for requesting or setting
information from SNMP agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP
traps, a version of the netstat command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl
mib browser. This package contains the snmpd and snmptrapd daemons,
documentation, etc.

You will probably also want to install the net-snmp-utils package,
which contains NET-SNMP utilities.

Building option:
--without tcp_wrappers : disable tcp_wrappers support

Update Information:

A security vulnerability has been found in Net-SNMP releases that
could permit a denial of service attack against Net-SNMP agent's which
have opened a stream based protocol (EG, TCP but not UDP
it should be
noted that Net-SNMP does not by default open a TCP port).
