Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : net-snmp (MDKSA-2007:225)

high Nessus Plugin ID 28275
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The SNMP agent in net-snmp 5.4.1 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU and memory consumption) via a GETBULK request with a large max-repeaters value.

Updated packages fix this issue.


Update the affected packages.
