Synopsis
========

A remote attacker can bypass the tcp-wrappers client authorization in
net-snmp.

Background
==========

net-snmp bundles software for generating and retrieving SNMP data.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                /   Vulnerable   /              Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-analyzer/net-snmp     < 5.4.2.1-r1              >= 5.4.2.1-r1

Description
===========

The netsnmp_udp_fmtaddr() function (snmplib/snmpUDPDomain.c), when
using TCP wrappers for client authorization, does not properly parse
hosts.allow rules.

Impact
======

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could bypass the ACL filtering,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary SNMP queries.

Workaround
==========

If possible, protect net-snmp with custom iptables rules:

    iptables -s [client] -d [host] -p udp --dport 161 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -s 0.0.0.0/0 -d [host] -p udp --dport 161 -j DROP

Resolution
==========

All net-snmp users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.4.2.1-r1"
