The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several vulnerabilities were discovered in net-snmp, a suite of Simple Network Management Protocol applications, which could lead to privilege escalation.


Upgrade the net-snmp packages.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 5.7.3+dfsg-5+deb10u1.
