I'm running a Dell PowerEdge 2500 and while SNMP is running by default, my
community string is PUBLIC with READ ONLY.

Subject: SNMP Enabled on Dell Servers
While Microsoft says that SNMP is NOT enabled on any version of Windows,
my new Dell PowerEdge with Win2000SP2 came with it installed and
running. Besides the current exploits, it uses the stupid defaults that
NT4.0 has, which is a community string of PUBLIC with READ-CREATE.
I figure the new holes in SNMP will case a lot of scanning for the
service, and there may be a lot of folks who do not realize that the
vendor might have installed it and turned it on in the OEM media.
