    SNMP Vulnerabilities

    I am sure many of you have already heard about this, but:

    Software bugs in a fundamental language of the Internet could leave routers, switches and even PCs open to attack, an Internet security watchdog said Tuesday.

    The problems affect the Simple Network Management Protocol, or SNMP, a basic language used to talk to routers, switches, printers and other managed network devices to allow network engineers to glean status and performance information.

    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    I think too many leave thier mibs on public rw and so gleaning attack info is child's play.
