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

medium Nessus Plugin ID 85173
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
