FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- Insecure default snmpd.config permissions (7a31dfba-600a-11e6-a6c3-14dae9d210b8)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The SNMP protocol supports an authentication model called USM, which
relies on a shared secret. The default permission of the snmpd
configuration file, /etc/snmpd.config, is weak and does not provide
adequate protection against local unprivileged users. Impact : A local
user may be able to read the shared secret, if configured and used by
the system administrator.
