critical Nessus Plugin ID 163348


The remote Slackware Linux host is missing a security update to net-snmp.


The version of net-snmp installed on the remote host is prior to 5.9.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the SSA:2022-202-01 advisory.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the affected net-snmp package.
