Ubuntu 6.06 LTS : net-snmp vulnerability (USN-456-1)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 28054
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe SNMP service did not correctly handle TCP disconnects. Remote subagents could cause a denial of service if they dropped a connection at a specific time.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
