Description Josh Bressers 2005-05-25 11:23:28 EDT
fixproc in Net-snmp 5.x before 5.2.1-r1 creates temporary files insecurely,
which allows local users to modify the contents of those files to execute
arbitrary commands, or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.

This issue should also affect RHEL3
