snmp securityhole

Our company is going to install like a Network chacking software which is using SNMP. And we are using some cisco routers and switching hubs. We have to add a new access list for snmp(for this software). I heard that certain cisco divices and software have securityholes concerned with snmp. What kind of situation about security is concerned to this case? Is it safety?

Re: snmp securityhole

I’d suggest taking a look at this security advisory http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/ios-snmp-ilmi-vuln-pub.shtmland to make sure your IOS version has the fix.

Re: snmp securityhole

The problem is that we don't want to change much.Especially we don't want to upgrade the software because if it has some bugs, it is critical problem for us. We must not shut down the devices, and must not got net down time even for a second. I already had read http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/ios-snmp-ilmi-vuln-pub.shtmland ,and I reed Workaround. Even though we don't want to touch the configuration as possible. I want to know how critical the problem which is caused by snmp security hole, and how easy or difficult to attack the hole for crackers.
