FreeBSD : net-snmp -- Remote DoS (5d85976a-9011-11e1-b5e0-000c299b62e1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 58889


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


The Red Hat Security Response Team reports :

An array index error, leading to out-of heap-based buffer read flaw was found in the way the net-snmp agent performed lookups in the extension table. When certain MIB subtrees were handled by the extend directive, a remote attacker (having read privileges to the subntree) could use this flaw to cause a denial of service condition via an SNMP GET request involving a non-existent extension table entry.


Update the affected package.
