Synopsis
========

A Denial of Service vulnerability has been discovered in Net-SNMP when
processing GETBULK requests.

Background
==========

Net-SNMP is a collection of tools for generating and retrieving SNMP
data.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-analyzer/net-snmp < 5.4.1-r1 >= 5.4.1-r1

Description
===========

The SNMP agent (snmpd) does not properly handle GETBULK requests with
an overly large "max-repetitions" field.

Impact
======

A remote unauthenticated attacker could send a specially crafted SNMP
request to the vulnerable application, possibly resulting in a high CPU
and memory consumption.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Net-SNMP users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.4.1-r1"

References
