Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address

TIFFScanlineSize function, which allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
execute arbitrary code via a crafted PPM image that
triggers an integer overflow, a zero-memory allocation,
and a heap-based buffer overflow. (CVE-2012-4564)
