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 asn1_d2i_read_bio function in crypto/asn1/a_d2i_fp.c
in OpenSSL before 0.9.8v, 1.0.0 before 1.0.0i, and 1.0.1
before 1.0.1a does not properly interpret integer data,
which allows remote attackers to conduct buffer overflow
attacks, and cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact,
via crafted DER data, as demonstrated by an X.509
certificate or an RSA public key. (CVE-2012-2110)

- Multiple integer signedness errors in
crypto/buffer/buffer.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8v allow remote
attackers to conduct buffer overflow attacks, and cause
a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have
unspecified other impact, via crafted DER data, as
demonstrated by an X.509 certificate or an RSA public
key. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an
incomplete fix for CVE-2012-2110. (CVE-2012-2131)
