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: 3.6

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated net-snmp packages fix security 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).

A remote denial-of-service flaw was found in the way snmptrapd handled certain SNMP traps when started with the -OQ option. If an attacker sent an SNMP trap containing a variable with a NULL type where an integer variable type was expected, it would cause snmptrapd to crash (CVE-2014-3565).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
