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 :

- The dav_xml_get_cdata function in main/util.c in the
mod_dav module in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.4.8
does not properly remove whitespace characters from
CDATA sections, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (daemon crash) via a crafted DAV WRITE
request. (CVE-2013-6438)

- The log_cookie function in mod_log_config.c in the
mod_log_config module in the Apache HTTP Server before
2.4.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (segmentation fault and daemon crash) via a
crafted cookie that is not properly handled during
truncation. (CVE-2014-0098)
