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 :

- lisp/files.el in Emacs 23.2, 23.3, 23.4, and 24.1
automatically executes eval forms in local-variable
sections when the enable-local-variables option is set
to :safe, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to
execute arbitrary Emacs Lisp code via a crafted file.
