SNMP Zero Length UDP Packet Remote DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 10266
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to denial of service.
DescriptionIt was possible to crash either the remote host or the firewall in between us and the remote host by sending an UDP packet of null size going to port 161 (snmp)
This flaw may allow an attacker to shut down your network.
SolutionContact your firewall vendor if it was the firewall which crashed, or filter incoming UDP traffic if the remote host crashed.
