Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:025: 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 MDKSA-2006:025 (net-snmp).



The fixproc application in Net-SNMP creates temporary files with predictable
file names which could permit a malicious local attacker to change the contents
of the temporary file by exploiting a race condition, which could possibly lead
to the execution of arbitrary code. As well, a local attacker could create
symbolic links in the /tmp directory that point to a valid file that would then
be overwritten when fixproc is executed (CVE-2005-1740). A remote Denial of
Service vulnerability was also discovered in the SNMP library that could be
exploited by a malicious SNMP server to crash the agent, if the agent uses TCP
sockets for communication (CVE-2005-2177). The updated packages have been
patched to correct these problems.
