Fedora Core 3 2005-562: net-snmp Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the net-snmp package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-562 (net-snmp).

SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a protocol used for
network management. The NET-SNMP project includes various SNMP tools:
an extensible agent, an SNMP library, tools for requesting or setting
information from SNMP agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP
traps, a version of the netstat command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl
mib browser. This package contains the snmpd and snmptrapd daemons,
documentation, etc.

You will probably also want to install the net-snmp-utils package,
which contains NET-SNMP utilities.

Building option:
-without tcp_wrappers : disable tcp_wrappers support
