GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE :net-snmp
SUMMARY :Denial of service
DATE :2002-10-14 08:00 UTC

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

The SNMP daemon included in the Net-SNMP package can be crashed
if it attempts to process a specially crafted packet. Exploitation
requires foreknowledge of a known SNMP community string (either
read or read/write). This issue potentially affects any Net-SNMP
installation in which the "public" read-only community string has not
been changed.

Read the full advisory at
http://www.idefense.com/advisory/10.02.02.txt

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.0.2a and earlier update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge net-snmp
emerge clean
