A new vulnerability has been found with this.... But anywayz... ....I'd be thinking about turning that SNMP (Simple network management Protocol) off anyway if I was you. There are a great number of hacks that exploit this. This new one is just the lastest in a long line. This effects users of Windows as well as Linux and other *IX operating systems. Have a read at this article: http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/24042.html There's instruction in the article for getting rid of it from both Linux and Windows. In Linux, I found I could do this: BASH# /etc/init.d/snmp stop to stop the service if it was running, and then BASH# ntsysv will list the services to start running at boot, find snmp and unstar it. Then hit ok. You will need to be root, or su'ed to root with "su - " to use these commands.
