RHSA-2008:0971 -- net-snmp security update (Important)

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:29197

Updated net-snmp packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol used for network management. A denial-of-service flaw was found in the way Net-SNMP processes SNMP GETBULK requests. A remote attacker who issued a specially-crafted request could cause the snmpd server to crash.
