Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2014-04-29 21:30:22 UTC
CVE-2014-2285 (
  The perl_trapd_handler function in perl/TrapReceiver/TrapReceiver.xs in
  Net-SNMP 5.7.3.pre3 and earlier, when using certain Perl versions, allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (snmptrapd crash) via an empty
  community string in an SNMP trap, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference
  within the newSVpv function in Perl.
