Patch  oval:com.redhat.rhba:def:20131150
RHBA-2013:1150: net-snmp bug fix update (None)  

The net-snmp packages provide various libraries and tools for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), including an SNMP library, an extensible agent, tools for requesting or setting information from SNMP agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the netstat command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl Management Information Base (MIB) browser.
This update fixes the following bug:
* When an AgentX subagent disconnected from the SNMP daemon (snmpd), the daemon did not properly check that there were no active requests queued in the subagent and destroyed the session. Consequently, the session was referenced by snmpd later when processing queued requests and because it was already destroyed, snmpd terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault or looped indefinitely. This update adds several checks to prevent the destruction of sessions with active requests, and snmpd no longer crashes in the described scenario. (BZ#993579)
Users of net-snmp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
