  <title>Net-SNMP: Denial of Service</title>
    A Denial of Service vulnerability has been discovered in Net-SNMP when
    processing GETBULK requests.
  <product type="ebuild">net-snmp</product>
  <announced>November 20, 2007</announced>
  <revised>November 20, 2007: 01</revised>
    <package name="net-analyzer/net-snmp" auto="yes" arch="*">
      <unaffected range="ge">5.4.1-r1</unaffected>
      <vulnerable range="lt">5.4.1-r1</vulnerable>
    Net-SNMP is a collection of tools for generating and retrieving SNMP
    The SNMP agent (snmpd) does not properly handle GETBULK requests with
    an overly large "max-repetitions" field.
  <impact type="normal">
    A remote unauthenticated attacker could send a specially crafted SNMP
    request to the vulnerable application, possibly resulting in a high CPU
    and memory consumption.
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    All Net-SNMP users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.4.1-r1&quot;</code>
