fix

The SNMP Agents with Weak Community Strings security check first looks for a weak default community name of public, private, default or system.  Then the check determines whether the community name is weak by seeing if the community name matches any entries in the password cracking dictionary file. You can find the password cracking dictionary file in \vsau\data\dict\unix.dict.
