Re: snmp problems still alive...

Hello there,

Since I am mentioned here it deserves a reply.

Many Cisco routers have an snmp "feature" with security ramifications
which Damir Rajnovic has agreed to post to Bugtraq (as of Jan. 1), but I
guess Cisco's lawyers have to hash it out for a few more weeks before
he'll be allowed to. If he doesn't, I will - jc

I still own a reply to John and wider audience and I am aware of that.
It is true that John found a 'feature' that is cause of some concern
and the only reason why I did not disclose it is that is not fixed jet.
I am assuring you that lawyers do not have anything with that. A fix
is a documentation fix. I was assured by people who are writing that
part of code (SNMP) that this particular behavior is according to the
specification (SNMPv3).

Mind you, I am not downplaying significance of that issue but merely
stating the facts.

There is no insolvable problems. Question remains: can you
accept the solution?
