MDKSA-2003:115: 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 MDKSA-2003:115 (net-snmp).
A vulnerability in Net-SNMP versions prior to 5.0.9 could allow an existing
user/community to gain access to data in MIB objects that were explicitly
excluded from their view.
The updated packages provide Net-SNMP version 5.0.9 which is not vulnerable to
this issue and also fixes a number of other smaller bugs.
