SNMPc Management Server Login Packet Remote DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25424
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains an application that is susceptible to a denial of service attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running SNMPc, a network management application for Windows.
The version of SNMPc installed on the remote host reportedly will crash if a specially crafted logon packet is sent to its Management Server. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to exploit this issue to crash the service and deny access to legitimate users.
SolutionUpgrade to SNMPc Management Server version 7.0.19 or later as that is supposed to address the issue.
