This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

This update to net-snmp resolves the following issues :

- Specially crafted SNMP GET requests could cause a denial
of service (application crash) via a heap-based
out-out-bounds read flaw which could be exploited
remotely. (CVE-2012-2141)

- After rotating the net-snmp log file, use 'try-restart'
to restart the daemon. Reloading with a SIGHUP signal
may trigger crashes when dynamic modules (dlmod) are in
use. (bnc#762433)
