Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in NET SNMP, a suite of
Simple Network Management Protocol applications. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Wes Hardaker reported that the SNMPv3 HMAC verification relies on
the client to specify the HMAC length, which allows spoofing of
authenticated SNMPv3 packets.
John Kortink reported a buffer overflow in the __snprint_value
function in snmp_get causing a denial of service and potentially
allowing the execution of arbitrary code via a large OCTETSTRING
in an attribute value pair (AVP).
It was reported that an integer overflow in the
netsnmp_create_subtree_cache function in agent/snmp_agent.c allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service attack via a crafted
SNMP GETBULK request.
For the stable distribution (etch), these problems has been fixed in
For the testing distribution (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid)
these problems have been fixed in version 5.4.1~dfsg-11.
