Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- envvars (aka envvars-std) in the Apache HTTP Server
before 2.4.2 places a zero-length directory name in the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which allows local users to gain
privileges via a Trojan horse DSO in the current working
directory during execution of apachectl. (CVE-2012-0883)

- Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in
the make_variant_list function in mod_negotiation.c in
the mod_negotiation module in the Apache HTTP Server
2.4.x before 2.4.3, when the MultiViews option is
enabled, allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
script or HTML via a crafted filename that is not
properly handled during construction of a variant list.
(CVE-2012-2687)
