FreeBSD : net-snmp -- snmptrapd crash (4622635f-37a1-11e5-9970-14dae9d210b8)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85173


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Murray McAllister reports :

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.


Update the affected packages.
