Insight

Insight

An array index error, leading to an out-of-bounds buffer read flaw, was found in the way the net-snmp agent looked up entries in the extension table. A remote attacker with read privileges to a Management Information Base (MIB) subtree handled by the extend directive (in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf) could use this flaw to crash snmpd via a crafted SNMP GET request. (CVE-2012-2141 )

Solution

Solution

Run yum update net-snmp to update your system.
