    Package        : ucd-snmp
    Problem type   : remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    CERT Advisory  : CA-2002-03
    The Secure Programming Group of the Oulu University did a study on
    SNMP implementations and uncovered multiple problems which can
    cause problems ranging from Denial of Service attacks to remote
    New UCD-SNMP packages have been prepared to fix these problems
    as well as a few others. The complete list of fixed problems is:
    * When running external programs snmpd used temporary files insecurely
    * snmpd did not properly reset supplementary groups after changing
      its uid and gid
    * Modified most code to use buffers instead of fixed-length strings to
      prevent buffer overflows
    * The ASN.1 parser did not check for negative lengths
    * the IFINDEX response handling in snmpnetstat did not do a sanity check
      on its input
    (thanks to Caldera for most of the work on those patches)
    The new version is 4.1.1-2.1 and we recommend you upgrade your
    snmp packages immediately.
