SNMPc SNMP TRAP buffer overflow
|snmpc-snmptrap-bo (42104)||High Risk|
SNMPc is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the SNMPc Network Manager. By sending a specially-crafted UDP packet containing an overly long string, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the LocalSystem or cause the system to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of SNMPc (7.1.1 or later), available from the Castle Rock Computing Web site. See References.
