Debian Security Advisory DSA 873-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
October 26th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : net-snmp
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2177
BugTraq ID : 14168

A security vulnerability has been found in Net-SNMP releases that
could allow a denial of service attack against Net-SNMP agent's that
have opened a stream based protocol (eg TCP but not UDP). By default,
Net-SNMP does not open a TCP port.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a net-snmp package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.1.2-6.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.2.1.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your net-snmp package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
