New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202007-63 (SNMP Trap Translator: Multiple vulnerabilities)
It was found that SNMP Trap Translator does not drop privileges as configured and does not properly escape shell commands in certain functions.
A remote attacker, by sending a malicious crafted SNMP trap, could possibly execute arbitrary shell code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll SNMP Trap Translator users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-analyzer/snmptt-1.4.1'
