I'm not that familiar with SNMPv3. From what I've read  it looks
like it solves most of the important security issues in the former
versions. It would be interesting to hear from somebody who actually
implemented it in their network.

I think that SNMPv2 can be reasonably secure if you implement it in a
cautious way. In other words: Secure enough that there are other issues
that we should try to fix first. (For example inter AS prefix filtering.)
