SNMP Trap Agent on Remote Host

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 1428


The remote host is running an inherently insecure protocol or application.


The remote host is running an SNMPv1 trap agent. It is possible to overflow the SNMP traps log with fake traps (if the community names are known), causing a Denial of service.


Look at alternate protocols or applications which do not blindly accept user-supplied input
