Updated net-snmp packages fix CVE-2012-6151

Publication date: 21 Jan 2014
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3
CVE: CVE-2012-6151


Updated net-snmp packages fix security vulnerability:

Net-SNMP 5.7.1 and earlier, when AgentX is registering to handle a MIB and
processing GETNEXT requests, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash or infinite loop, CPU consumption, and hang) by causing the
AgentX subagent to timeout (CVE-2012-6151).

This update also fixes two other minor issues: IPADDRESS size in
python-netsnmp on 64-bit systems and adding btrfs support to hrFSTable.
