This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


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 :

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the readgifimage function
in the gif2tiff tool in libtiff 4.0.3 and earlier allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted height
and width values in a GIF image. (CVE-2013-4243)

- The LZW decompressor in the gif2tiff tool in libtiff
4.0.3 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to
cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted
GIF image. (CVE-2013-4244)
