I can reliably reproduce this on my 20.04 (vmWare 6.7 amd64 guest) systems running the following:

sudo snmpbulkget -v3 -Cn0 -Cr50 -l authPriv -u testuser -a SHA -A <pass> -x DES -X <pass> iso.

A gdb backtrace looks like the following:

double free or corruption (fasttop)

I haven't been able to reproduce running the command remotely, but it does seem to reliably crash snmpd when running locally. However, we use SolarWinds Orion NPM to monitor our internal infrastructure, and it runs similar bulkget commands that will reliably crash snmpd remotely on our 20.04 test servers.

Please let me know if there's any other information I can provide.
