Ubuntu 10.04 LTS : net-snmp vulnerability (USN-946-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The SNMP server did not correctly validate certain UDP clients when
using TCP wrappers. Under some situations, a remote attacker could
bypass access restrictions and communicate with the SNMP server,
potentially leading to a loss of privacy or 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 packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
