Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : net-snmp (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_net_snmp)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- Net-SNMP 5.7.1 and earlier, when AgentX is registering
to handle a MIB and processing GETNEXT requests, allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or
infinite loop, CPU consumption, and hang) by causing the
AgentX subagent to timeout. (CVE-2012-6151)

- The AgentX subagent in Net-SNMP before 5.4.4 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (hang) by
sending a multi-object request with an Object ID (OID)
containing more subids than previous requests, a
different vulnerability than CVE-2012-6151.
(CVE-2014-2310)
