Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : net-snmp (MDVSA-2014:052)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72999


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


Updated net-snmp packages fix two vulnerabilities :

Remotely exploitable denial of service vulnerability in Net-SNMP, in the Linux implementation of the ICMP-MIB, making the SNMP agent vulnerable if it is making use of the ICMP-MIB table objects (CVE-2014-2284).

Remotely exploitable denial of service vulnerability in Net-SNMP, in snmptrapd, due to how it handles trap requests with an empty community string when the perl handler is enabled (CVE-2014-2285).


Update the affected packages.
