Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains one medium risk vulnerability.

1) Resource management error

EUVDB-ID: #VU33289

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3565

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to perform service disruption.

snmplib/mib.c in net-snmp 5.7.0 and earlier, when the -OQ option is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (snmptrapd crash) via a crafted SNMP trap message, which triggers a conversion to the variable type designated in the MIB file, as demonstrated by a NULL type in an ifMtu trap message.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Net-snmp: 5.7.0
