Technical Details:
The Secure Programming Group of the Oulu University did a study on SNMP implementations and uncovered multiple problems which can cause problems ranging from Denial of Service attacks to remote exploits. New UCD-SNMP Linux Distribution Packages have been prepared to fix these problems as well as a few others. The complete list of fixed problems is: * When running external programs snmpd used temporary files insecurely * snmpd did not properly reset supplementary groups after changing its uid and gid * Modified most code to use buffers instead of fixed-length strings to prevent buffer overflows * The ASN.1 parser did not check for negative lengths * the IFINDEX response handling in snmpnetstat did not do a sanity check on its input (thanks to Caldera for most of the work on those patches) The new version is 4.1.1-2.1 and we recommend you upgrade your snmp Linux Distribution Packages immediately.

The remote host is missing an update to ucd-snmp announced via advisory DSA 111-1.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
