 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:049

 Package : net-snmp
 Date    : April 5, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in net-snmp:
 
 An array index error, leading to out-of heap-based buffer read flaw
 was found in the way net-snmp agent performed entries lookup in the
 extension table. When certain MIB subtree was handled by the extend
 directive, a remote attacker having read privilege to the subtree could
 use this flaw to cause a denial of service (snmpd crash) via SNMP GET
 request involving a non-existent extension table entry (CVE-2012-2141).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
