Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : memcached (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_memcached)

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 :

- The process_bin_delete function in memcached.c in
memcached 1.4.4 and other versions before 1.4.17, when
running in verbose mode, allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a
request to delete a key, which does not account for the
lack of a null terminator in the key and triggers a
buffer over-read when printing to stderr.
(CVE-2013-0179)

- memcached before 1.4.17 allows remote attackers to
bypass authentication by sending an invalid request with
SASL credentials, then sending another request with
incorrect SASL credentials. (CVE-2013-7239)

- The do_item_get function in items.c in memcached 1.4.4
and other versions before 1.4.17, when running in
verbose mode, allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (segmentation fault) via a request to delete
a key, which does not account for the lack of a null
terminator in the key and triggers a buffer over-read
when printing to stderr, a different vulnerability than
CVE-2013-0179. (CVE-2013-7290)

- memcached before 1.4.17, when running in verbose mode,
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via a request that triggers an 'unbounded key
print' during logging, related to an issue that was
'quickly grepped out of the source tree,' a different
vulnerability than CVE-2013-0179 and CVE-2013-7290.
(CVE-2013-7291)
