Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: SNMP Trap Translator: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 202007-63)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2020-07-31
Bug(s): #733478
ID: 202007-63

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in SNMP Trap Translator,
the worst of which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary shell code.


Background

SNMP Trap Translator (SNMPTT) is an SNMP trap handler written in Perl.

Affected Packages

Package: net-analyzer/snmptt
Vulnerable: < 1.4.1
Unaffected: >= 1.4.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

It was found that SNMP Trap Translator does not drop privileges as
configured and does not properly escape shell commands in certain
functions.


Impact

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.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All SNMP Trap Translator users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/snmptt-1.4.1"
