Description :

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

- Ruby (aka CRuby) before 1.8.7-p357 computes hash values
without restricting the ability to trigger hash
collisions predictably, which allows context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption)
via crafted input to an application that maintains a
hash table. (CVE-2011-4815)
