Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 10.04 LTS / 11.04 / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : net-snmp vulnerability (USN-1450-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 59254
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that Net-SNMP incorrectly performed entry lookups in the extension table. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request and cause the SNMP server to crash, leading to a denial of service.
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 libsnmp15 package.
