Description Josh Bressers 2005-07-11 16:15:55 UTC
This text comes from this message:

From: Wes Hardaker

 A security vulnerability has been found in Net-SNMP releases that
 could allow a denial of service attack against Net-SNMP agent"s which
 have opened a stream based protocol (EG, TCP but not UDP; it should be
 noted that Net-SNMP does not by default open a TCP port).  Because of
 this, we"ve immediately released a number of Net-SNMP versions
 (5.2.1.2, 5.1.3, and 5.0.10.2) to fix this problem in the various
 Net-SNMP branches.  Most of these versions are minor patches from a
 previous release, but since we were so close to releasing 5.1.3 anyway
 we decided to do a full release of that rather than an incremental
 release from the 5.1.2 release.
