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 :

- do_tgs_req.c in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT
Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.11 before 1.11.4, when a
single-component realm name is used, allows remote
authenticated users to cause a denial of service (daemon
crash) via a TGS-REQ request that triggers an attempted
cross-realm referral for a host-based service principal.
(CVE-2013-1417)

- The setup_server_realm function in main.c in the Key
Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5)
before 1.10.7, when multiple realms are configured,
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via a
crafted request. (CVE-2013-1418)
