<title>Net-SNMP: Denial of Service</title>
A Denial of Service vulnerability has been discovered in Net-SNMP when
processing GETBULK requests.
<product type="ebuild">net-snmp</product>
<announced>November 20, 2007</announced>
<revised>November 20, 2007: 01</revised>
<package name="net-analyzer/net-snmp" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">5.4.1-r1</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">5.4.1-r1</vulnerable>
Net-SNMP is a collection of tools for generating and retrieving SNMP
The SNMP agent (snmpd) does not properly handle GETBULK requests with
an overly large "max-repetitions" field.
<impact type="normal">
A remote unauthenticated attacker could send a specially crafted SNMP
request to the vulnerable application, possibly resulting in a high CPU
and memory consumption.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Net-SNMP users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.4.1-r1&quot;</code>
