Description

Updated Net-SNMP packages are available to correct a security vulnerability and other bugs.

The Net-SNMP project includes various Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) tools. A security issue in Net-SNMP versions before 5.0.9 could allow an existing user/community to gain access to data in MIB objects that were explicitly excluded from their view. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0935 to this issue. Users of Net-SNMP are advised to upgrade to these errata packages containing Net-SNMP 5.0.9 which is not vulnerable to this issue. In addition, Net-SNMP 5.0.9 fixes a number of other minor bugs.
