Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : net-snmp (MDVSA-2014:017)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72101
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated net-snmp packages fix security vulnerability :
Net-SNMP 5.7.1 and earlier, when AgentX is registering to handle a MIB and processing GETNEXT requests, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or infinite loop, CPU consumption, and hang) by causing the AgentX subagent to timeout (CVE-2012-6151).
This update also fixes two other minor issues: IPADDRESS size in python-netsnmp on 64-bit systems and adding btrfs support to hrFSTable.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
