Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Murray McAllister reports :

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.
