    Synopsis
    ========
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in SNMP Trap Translator, the
    worst of which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary shell code.
    
    Background
    ==========
    
    SNMP Trap Translator (SNMPTT) is an SNMP trap handler written in Perl.
    
    Affected packages
    =================
    
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1  net-analyzer/snmptt          < 1.4.1                    >= 1.4.1
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    It was found that SNMP Trap Translator does not drop privileges as
    configured and does not properly escape shell commands in certain
    functions.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A remote attacker, by sending a malicious crafted SNMP trap, could
    possibly execute arbitrary shell code with the privileges of the
    process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    All SNMP Trap Translator users should upgrade to the latest version:
    
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/snmptt-1.4.1"
