The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A denial of service vulnerability was discovered in how Net-SNMP
processed GETBULK requests. A remote attacker with read access to the
SNMP server could issue a specially crafted request which would cause
snmpd to crash (CVE-2008-4309).
Please note that for this to be successfully exploited, an attacker
must have read access to the SNMP server. By default, the public
community name grants read-only access, however it is recommended that
the default community name be changed in production.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
Public Exploit Available : true
