Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : modsecurity (cve_2012_2751_improper_input)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- ModSecurity before 2.6.6, when used with PHP, does not
properly handle single quotes not at the beginning of a
request parameter value in the Content-Disposition field
of a request with a multipart/form-data Content-Type
header, which allows remote attackers to bypass
filtering rules and perform other attacks such as
cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. NOTE: this
vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for
CVE-2009-5031. (CVE-2012-2751)

- ModSecurity before 2.7.3 allows remote attackers to read
arbitrary files, send HTTP requests to intranet servers,
or cause a denial of service (CPU and memory
consumption) via an XML external entity declaration in
conjunction with an entity reference, aka an XML
External Entity (XXE) vulnerability. (CVE-2013-1915)
