(edit)
It was discovered that the snmp_pdu_parse() mishandles error codes and is vulnerable to a heap corruption within the parsing of the PDU prior to the authentication process. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to crash snmpd or, potentially, execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the user running snmpd.
