Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated Net-SNMP packages are available to correct a security
vulnerability and other bugs.

The Net-SNMP project includes various Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP) tools.

A security issue in Net-SNMP versions before 5.0.9 could allow an
existing user/community to gain access to data in MIB objects that
were explicitly excluded from their view. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2003-0935 to this issue.

Users of Net-SNMP are advised to upgrade to these errata packages
containing Net-SNMP 5.0.9 which is not vulnerable to this issue. In
addition, Net-SNMP 5.0.9 fixes a number of other minor bugs.
