Description

REJECT DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: None. Reason: this candidate is solely about a configuration that does not directly introduce security vulnerabilities, so it is more appropriate to cover under the Common Configuration Enumeration (CCE). Notes: the former description is: "The SNMP service is running." This Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) entry is a configuration issue and not a software flaw. As such, it doesn’t fit in the CVE software flaw list. The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score for this CVE entry has been set to 0 because this CVE entry has no impact as a software flaw according to CVSS. This does not mean that the configuration issue is not important and there may be security implications relative to computers having this configuration. SNMPv3 is a secure protocol for management of networked systems, provided the cryptographic security mechanisms are used. SNMPv1 and SNMPv2 are unsecured protocols for Internet facing systems and should only be used on a trusted network segment. For all versions, the software should be patched and configured properly.
