Oracle Linux 3 / 4 / 5 : net-snmp (ELSA-2008-0529)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 67708

Synopsis

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

Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0529 :

Updated net-snmp packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.

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 Net-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)

A buffer overflow was found in the Perl bindings for Net-SNMP. This could be exploited if an attacker could convince an application using the Net-SNMP Perl module to connect to a malicious SNMP agent.
(CVE-2008-2292)

All users of net-snmp should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

Solution

Update the affected net-snmp packages.
