Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.1.4.2012.0888.1
Category:SuSE Local Security Checks
Title:SUSE: Security Advisory (SUSE-SU-2012:0888-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'net-snmp' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2012:0888-1 advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'net-snmp' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2012:0888-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
This update to net-snmp resolves the following issues:

* Specially crafted SNMP GET requests could cause a denial of service (application crash) via a heap-based out-out-bounds read flaw which could be exploited remotely
(CVE-2012-2141).
* The snmpd agent should read shared memory information from /proc/meminfo when running on Linux Kernel 2.6 or newer (bnc#762887).
* The snmpd agent could crash when an AgentX sub-agent disconnects in the middle of a request (bnc#670789).
* After rotating the net-snmp log file, use
'try-restart' to restart the daemon. Reloading with a SIGHUP signal may trigger crashes when dynamic modules
(dlmod) are in use (bnc#762433).

Security Issue reference:
