Critical Nessus Plugin ID 33156


The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated ucd-snmp packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol used for network management.

A flaw was found in the way ucd-snmp checked an SNMPv3 packet's Keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code (HMAC). An attacker could use this flaw to spoof an authenticated SNMPv3 packet. (CVE-2008-0960)

All users of ucd-snmp should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
