+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #162907 +++
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
(126.96.36.199, 5.1.3, and 188.8.131.52) 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.
Adding on ProposedList, ACKs should be same as for Bug #162907 .
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
