2 May 2007

net-snmp vulnerability



The SNMP service did not correctly handle TCP disconnects. Remote
subagents could cause a denial of service if they dropped a connection
at a specific time.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06
  • snmpd -

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
