Description

LSAC(v2)
The net-snmp packages provide various libraries and tools for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), including an SNMP library, an extensible agent, tools for requesting or setting information from SNMP agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the netstat command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl Management information Base (MIB) browser. This update fixes the following bug: * The SNMP daemon (snmpd) did not properly encode a negative Request-ID in outgoing requests (for example during trap operations). As a consequence, a 32-bit value could be encoded in 5 bytes instead of 4, and the outgoing requests could be refused by some implementations of the SNMP protocol as invalid. With this update, a Request-ID can no longer become negative and is always encoded in 4 bytes. (BZ#820850) All users of net-snmp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
