Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol used for network
management.

A flaw was discovered in the way net-snmp handled certain requests. A
remote attacker who can connect to the snmpd UDP port (161 by default)
could send a malicious packet causing snmpd to crash, resulting in a
denial of service. (CVE-2007-5846)

All users of net-snmp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
