New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability was found in how Net-SNMP checked an SNMPv3 packet's Keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code (HMAC). An attacker could exploit this flaw to spoof an authenticated SNMPv3 packet (CVE-2008-0960).
A buffer overflow was found in the perl bindings for Net-SNMP that could be exploited if an attacker could convince an application using the Net-SNMP perl modules to connect to a malicious SNMP agent (CVE-2008-2292).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
