SNMPTrap was removed because it was easier to throw away
functionality than to verify it's string handling operations. I don't
know of an exact vulnerability

You have 2 choices:

1) Merge in snmptrap from 1.9 ( pretty easy task ) This is entirely
2) Switch to a different output mechanism like syslog.

If you are going to do this, I'd recommend you instead write a plugin
for barnyard.
