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 Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, as used
in Perl 5.20.1 and earlier, allows context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (stack
consumption and crash) via an Array-Reference with many
nested Array-References, which triggers a large number
of recursive calls to the DD_dump function.
(CVE-2014-4330)
