|Title:||Debian LTS: Security Advisory for net-snmp (DLA-2299-1)|
|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'net-snmp'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2299-1 advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'net-snmp'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2299-1 advisory.
A privilege escalation vulnerability vulnerability was discovered in
Net-SNMP, a set of tools for collecting and organising information
about devices on computer networks.
Upstream notes that:
* It is still possible to enable this MIB via the --with-mib-modules configure option.
* Another MIB that provides similar functionality, namely
ucd-snmp/extensible, is disabled by default.
* The security risk of ucd-snmp/pass and ucd-snmp/pass_persist is
lower since these modules only introduce a security risk if the
invoked scripts are exploitable.
'net-snmp' package(s) on Debian Linux.
For Debian 9 'Stretch', this issue has been fixed in net-snmp version
We recommend that you upgrade your net-snmp packages.
