Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 10.04 LTS / 11.04 / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : net-snmp vulnerability (USN-1450-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

It was discovered that Net-SNMP incorrectly performed entry lookups in
the extension table. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted
request and cause the SNMP server to crash, leading to a denial of
service.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected libsnmp15 package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 3.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.0
