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 huft_build function in inflate.c in gzip before
1.3.13 creates a hufts (aka huffman) table that is too
small, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (application crash or infinite loop) or
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted archive.
NOTE: this issue is caused by a CVE-2006-4334
regression. (CVE-2009-2624)
