CVE-2007-5846

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The SNMP agent (snmp_agent.c) in net-snmp before 5.4.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU and memory consumption) via a GETBULK request with a large max-repeaters value.
