PACKAGE   : ucd-snmp
SUMMARY   : Remote heap overflow vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-07-15 15:03:00
ID        : CLA-2003:696
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8

DESCRIPTION
 ucd-snmp is an implementation and a set of tools to deal with the
 Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which is used for remote
 administration and monitoring of network devices and services.
 
 Axioma Security Research found[1] a remote heap overflow
 vulnerability[2] in snmpnetstat (a tool used to retrieve information
 about a remote host). When a list of interfaces is requested, a
 malicious server can return information in a way that will cause a
 heap overflow in snmpnetstat.
 
 A remote atacker able to control a snmp server can exploit this
 vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
 user running snmpnetstat.


SOLUTION
 All ucd-snmp users should upgrade.
