The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address

servers to have an unspecified impact via a large
proxy.pac file. (CVE-2012-4504)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the px_pac_reload function
in lib/pac.c in libproxy 0.2.x and 0.3.x allows remote
servers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted
Content-Length size in an HTTP response header for a
proxy.pac file request, a different vulnerability than
CVE-2012-4504. (CVE-2012-4505)
