Patches: SNMP vulnerability

As we reported earlier this week, a major flaw has been discovered in the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) used for managing just about everything connected to an IP network. The vulnerability could be exploited in a denial-of-service attack or by a malicious user looking to gain access to certain systems. Vendors are quickly turning around patches to protect against this problem. For vendor patches go to:
