The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A denial-of-service flaw was found in the way Net-SNMP processes SNMP
GETBULK requests. A remote attacker who issued a specially crafted
request could cause the snmpd server to crash. (CVE-2008-4309)
Note: An attacker must have read access to the SNMP server in order to
exploit this flaw. In the default configuration, the community name
'public' grants read-only access. In production deployments, it is
recommended to change this default community name.
