Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : memcached (cve_2013_0179_buffer_errors)

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)
