Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : net-snmp (MDVSA-2015:092)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated net-snmp packages fix security 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
string when the perl handler is enabled (CVE-2014-2285).

A remote denial-of-service flaw was found in the way snmptrapd handled
certain SNMP traps when started with the -OQ option. If an attacker
sent an SNMP trap containing a variable with a NULL type where an
integer variable type was expected, it would cause snmptrapd to crash
(CVE-2014-3565).
