Ubuntu: New Net-SNMP packages fix security issues

The SNMP server did not correctly validate certain UDP clients when using TCP wrappers. Under some situations, a remote attacker could bypass access restrictions and communicate with the SNMP server, potentially leading to a loss of privacy or a denial of service. Updated packages are available from security.ubuntu.com.
