Summary

Some SNMP implementations are prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability when receiving UDP packets with zero length.

Detection Method

Detection Method

Sends multiple crafted UDP packets and checks if the service is still reachable afterwards. Note: For a successful detection the remote SNMP service either needs to accept a default 'public' SNMPv1 / SNMPv2c community or a valid one needs to be given in the credentials configuration of the scanning task.

Solution

Solution

Contact your vendor for updates.
