Critical Nessus Plugin ID 78225

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.4

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

SNMPv3 HMAC verification relies on the client to specify the HMAC length. This flexibility allows remote attackers to bypass SNMP authentication by specifying a length value of 1 , which only checks the first byte.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL8939.
