authentication bypass, denial-of-service
Please Install the Updated Packages.
The net-snmp daemon implements the " simple network management protocol" . The version 3 of SNMP as implemented in net-snmp uses the length of the HMAC in a packet to verify against a local HMAC for authentication. An attacker can therefore send a SNMPv3 packet with a one byte HMAC and guess the correct first byte of the local HMAC with 256 packets (max). Additionally a buffer overflow in perl-snmp was fixed that can cause a denial-of-service/crash.
