Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated net-snmp packages fix two vulnerabilities :

Remotely exploitable denial of service vulnerability in Net-SNMP, in
the Linux implementation of the ICMP-MIB, making the SNMP agent
vulnerable if it is making use of the ICMP-MIB table objects
(CVE-2014-2284).

Remotely exploitable denial of service vulnerability in Net-SNMP, in
snmptrapd, due to how it handles trap requests with an empty community
