Bug Fix Advisory net-snmp bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0674-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-05-21
Last updated on: 2012-05-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated net-snmp packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The net-snmp packages provide various libraries and tools for the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP), including an SNMP library, an extensible agent,
tools for requesting or setting information from SNMP agents, tools for
generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the netstat command which uses
SNMP, and a Tk/Perl Management information Base (MIB) browser.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The SNMP daemon (snmpd) did not properly encode a negative Request-ID in
outgoing requests (for example during trap operations). As a consequence, a
32-bit value could be encoded in 5 bytes instead of 4, and the outgoing requests
could be refused by some implementations of the SNMP protocol as invalid. With
this update, a Request-ID can no longer become negative and is always encoded in
4 bytes. (BZ#820850)

All users of net-snmp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
