ucd-snmp vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :

Description :

USN-190-1 fixed a vulnerability in the net-snmp library. It was
discovered that the same problem also affects the ucs-snmp
implementation (which is used by the Cyrus email server).

Original advisory:
