Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The Red Hat Security Response Team reports :

An array index error, leading to out-of heap-based buffer read flaw
was found in the way the net-snmp agent performed lookups in the
extension table. When certain MIB subtrees were handled by the extend
directive, a remote attacker (having read privileges to the subntree)
could use this flaw to cause a denial of service condition via an SNMP
GET request involving a non-existent extension table entry.
