 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:017
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : net-snmp
 Date    : January 22, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated net-snmp packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 Net-SNMP 5.7.1 and earlier, when AgentX is registering to handle
 a MIB and processing GETNEXT requests, allows remote attackers to
 cause a denial of service (crash or infinite loop, CPU consumption,
 and hang) by causing the AgentX subagent to timeout (CVE-2012-6151).
 
 This update also fixes two other minor issues: IPADDRESS size in
 python-netsnmp on 64-bit systems and adding btrfs support to hrFSTable.
