Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61807
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0971
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0971.

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol used for
network management.

A denial-of-service flaw was found in the way Net-SNMP processes SNMP
GETBULK requests. A remote attacker who issued a specially-crafted request
could cause the snmpd server to crash. (CVE-2008-4309)

Note: An attacker must have read access to the SNMP server in order to
exploit this flaw. In the default configuration, the community name
public grants read-only access. In production deployments, it is
recommended to change this default community name.

All users of net-snmp should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
