The authentication code reads the length to be checked from sender input, this allows the sender to supply single byte HMAC code and have a 1 in 256 chance of matching the correct HMAC and authenticating, as only the first byte will be checked. The sender would need to know a valid username. Currently Net-SNMP and UCD-SNMP are known to be vulnerable, other SNMP implementations may also be affected. The eCos project includes code derived from UCD-SNMP and is therefore also affected. Affected version: Net-SNMP <= 5.4.1, <= 5.3.2, <= 5.2.4 UCD-SNMP, all versions eCos, all versions Fixed version: Net-SNMP >= 22.214.171.124, >= 126.96.36.199, >= 188.8.131.52 UCD-SNMP, N/A eCos, N/A Credit: this issue was reported by CERT/CC, it is tracked as VU#878044.
