Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in SNMP Trap Translator, the worst of which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary shell code.
|Package||net-analyzer/snmptt on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.4.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.4.1|
SNMP Trap Translator (SNMPTT) is an SNMP trap handler written in Perl.
It was found that SNMP Trap Translator does not drop privileges as configured and does not properly escape shell commands in certain functions.
A remote attacker, by sending a malicious crafted SNMP trap, could possibly execute arbitrary shell code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All SNMP Trap Translator users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/snmptt-1.4.1"
